The only thing lower than the temperature at the White Sox home opener was the attendance. I mean, sure, the 3-6 White Sox and the 2-8 Rays aren't featuring powerhouse lineups one would call a cast of thousands, but you would think they could at least pull a thousand people to see a game.
They can’t. At least they couldn’t Monday when a whopping 974 people showed up with tickets to watch the White Sox fall to the Rays 5-4 on a snowy, soggy day.
Hey, in their defense, the actual paid attendance was 1,377.
I guess 403 people just had something better to do. And by that I mean anything else.
But hey, it wasn’t the lowest attended game ever, just three years ago on April 28, 2015 Camden Yards had zero people in the stands for a game when fans weren’t allowed in for safety purposes due to rioting in Baltimore.
No one in Chicago seems remotely that excited about the White Sox 2018 season.
