I've refrained from writing about the Baltimore protests (because frankly I don't know enough about the ins and outs of what is happening and why to really do it justice) but I wanted to share these strange pics and video.
For the first time ever, the Baltimore Orioles played the Chicago White Sox at Camden Yards....in a completely empty stadium. Because of the protests, no fans were allowed in.
Isn't it strange just how lackluster the game becomes without any fans there to cheer it on? No doubt that sports culture is largely based on fan culture, not just the skill of the players, though I'm sure some will disagree. Some reporters even wrote that its "not that strange" but I really disagree.
Ah, and for those wondering ,the Orioles beat the White Sox 8-2.
