Bye, bye Ottawa Rapidz. A real sports person could have told you that semi-pro baseball wouldn't work here. Aside from the lousy early-season, late-season climate, Ottawans don't like baseball in the sustainable number of fans needed to make it work.By extension, then, Miles Wolff -- not a real sports person, huh?
This is surprising given the essential nature of Ottawans and baseball: Slow. Often boring. Prone to narcolepsy.
I'll say it: Blaming the Rapidz' demise on the customers is like blaming Enron's accounting frauds on its customers. They had 4,000-plus fans out for the first few games, and that would have kept up had their owners not revealed themselves time and again to be nincompoops.
Yeeeeerrrrrrrrr out!; Please, no more pro baseball teams in sleepy Ottawa (Earl McRae, Ottawa Sun)
