Just a question: Who goes to the bucks games?
I don't have a survey at hand that tells me what Laredoans support and attend the Laredo Bucks' games. I have to admit that I've wonderd about that question before. I don't know if I'm playing into stereotypes but I tend to think that it's mostly people who live in North Laredo and who have relatively good incomes. I might be wrong. The reason that I ask this is that I wonder who the main target group is going to be for the new baseball team.
With the Laredo Broncos, you could see that those in attendance were from a cross-section of Laredo. There were people who simply walked to the games from their homes in West Laredo. Others, no doubt, drove from farther away. I have a feeling that the new park is just going to mean more things for North Laredo to do and not necessarily for all Laredoans. Am I wrong? Any comments would be appreciated. It's not a survey but it'd interesting to hear what others think.
Incidentally, I don't agree with whoever thought that promoting the Bucks with the "big friggin weekend" was a good idea. We all know the actual wording that is implied and they shouldn't be promoting that kind of language. It's sorta like when Burger King had that brilliant idea of putting a sign that read "We've got your whopper right here". I mean come on, do we really need to add to the idea of being an illiterate city?
