Anyone still watching?[...]

I didn't go last night (after 8 1/2 hours in an unheated office I really had no desire to wait for a Metrobus on a wet cold evening to watch our local NBA side mess up again); announced attendance was 13,846 which means the place was probably slightly over half full at best. And yesterday (like Wednesdays and Fridays generally) was a Student Rush night (discounted tickets for university students at rather attractive prices, which have drawn fair numbers in the past).

Combine that with this past Saturday vs Detroit ('Family Fun' promo for kids, again with vast banks of seats empty) and the supporter base is starting to dry up...even the college kids and young families are staying away now.
