MLB: Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

I’ve always been fascinated by people that stick around after rain delays. Now, last night, the rain delay wasn’t long so it’s not like people had to wait very long. However, the game did not lend itself to the belief that things would be getting better for the Phillies. Once they put up two more runs in the sixth inning, the Marlins were well on their way to victory, a sprinkle of runs from the Phillies dabbled in late.

So why stick around? What preference is there to staying at the game versus getting home in the air conditioning and getting a few extra minutes of sleep, or maybe chatting with a significant other or children? Are there that many diehards that never leave the stadium until the game is over? Sounds like a poll.
