    That's kind of loaded, this town never had a pro team, they had 2 games here last year, the astros aren't that good, and the Rangers are sliding back. Montreal hasn't had baseball in 10 years after having it for almost 30 years.
    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

    I've read several members of the local media state that the attendance was disappointing. The Mets and Blue Jays are both terrible teams and the Expos existed for 36 seasons. The Rangers sliding back? I don't know about that.

    I guess my point was more that at least Montreal has a baseball past and misses baseball, whereas San Antonio has no baseball past so has no real reason to recapture lost emotions.
