Some of the most loyal fans I've ever seen are those of the San Diego Padres. Despite the fact that the current owner hoodwinked them by getting them to vote for a new stadium -- in the post-World Series haze of 1998 -- the fans have faithfully turned out these last five years.
The Padres, at least, for all their parsimony, have shelved the "Keep The Faith" promo of a couple years back.
Now, the fans are turning up at games with paper bags on their heads
, a la The Unknown Comic and New Orleans Saints fans of yore.
