Padres fans are some of the most loyal baseball fans

Or we're right around average, depending on how you want to look at it. Forbes made a top ten list and Padres fans came in right at number 10.

Forbes based their numbers on how consistent fans have been in attending games since 1991, which seems just as good a metric as any so long as we can be ranked ahead of Dodger and Giants fans. Such fairweather fans.

Actually, I've been hanging onto the mantra that we've got the most fairweather fans in baseball so I'm a little weirded out by these results. I don't know how to act now that I've been told by Forbes that I'm not the only person who's loyal to this crap team. It's like finding out that I'm not the only one in the world who's heard of the incredible vocal talent that is John Mayer. Or being like, "There's a terrific new store for delightful knick knacks that I've just discovered over the weekend called Things Remembered."

Maybe this explains why the Padres haven't gone after free agents. "Those suckers are so loyal! They stay with us through anything!" We're all part of some crazy torture experiment where we're forced to watch bad baseball under the guise of "well we made the playoffs didn't we?"

THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES!!!
