I see "rigged" all over it, just like their "diamond dig" they did last year.
I remember another team making it to two million or three (I believe) but they announced that they would reach it before the season started. It looks like the Blue Crabs just figured this out a few nights ago.
I'm betting it's going to go to a sponsor or a former sponsor that ditched their advertising with them. They certainly are not going to give it to a guy who walks in with a Somerset shirt on, even if he was the millionth "fan."
What is really interesting is if they are going to give it away tonight or tomorrow night. Will over 2,000 fans walk in the gate tonight? I'll really know it was rigged if they give it to someone and there is only a few hundred people in the park. Are they really going to count all the way up to 2,000 and something with three entrance gates (or will they just use one, making it a real mess?)
BUT If I win, I certainly will take back everything I said about this affair. (Thank goodness I'm only an anonymous fan here.)
