There could be something to be gleaned from them. And their stadiums hold over twice the amount of people that ours do.
Their fans show up. Their Season Ticket holders pass their tickets down - generation, to generation, to generation. They dont sell them off, especially to rival fans, to offset their tickets cost.

I've been to both stadiums...wearing Jays gear and was heckled beyond belief. I was called every name in the book. I was afraid to take a piss at Fenway because I thought I was going to get thrown in to the trough.

Difference in those cities with those teams...people care...deep down.
