"This is a call to all my past resignations..."

I hate to come off as some 80-year old pining for the "good ole days"...but the more I watch this team lose, watch players I care about shipped out of town, watch valuable members of the roster head to the DL one-by-one...I can't help but long for the excitement, fun and anticipation that came with each game in 2005, 2006 and 2007.  Games with real meaning. Games where I made a point to be ready at first pitch. Games where I would log onto the GLB a few minutes early to see if the Open Thread was up and ready to go.

The winning, the fight for the NL West, the possibilities in the playoffs...all those things were that much more intense because of the GLB.

I miss the truly great Open Thread's of the past. I know that having a garbage team makes it difficult...but I want to try and squeeze one great one out of '08.

Here is my idea: This coming Tuesday (Aug. 26th) is a home game against the D-Backs. Let's all try and make a point of showing up...regulars, former regulars, the newbies...EVERYBODY. Pre-2.0, the goal was to collapse the sucker...that's what I'm looking for.  Hell, I even want rainbows, unicorns, dancing spideys, Dolphin Porn, J Dub calling a no-hitter...all of it.

Is this idea ridiculous? Or are you guys feeling the same way?
