Which streak is more impressive, Ripken's games played or Red Sox Sellouts?

With all of the excitement in Birdland, I love seeing the crowded Yard. Looking up the Red Sox consecutive sellout streak I was in complete awe of that number....820! How the heck does that happen????? Let's pack the Yard!

Tejada's streak. That's how impressive the fake Boston Streak is.

Man, tough crowd, tough crowd ...

It's kind of a strange question to ask on an Orioles board.

If it were a neutral team's site (any other M.L.B. team besides the Orioles or the Red Sox), it might pique a little bit of interest, but you are asking a group of people who are about as biased as can be on the subject.

Any respectable baseball fan would have the same answer. It's like asking if Ted Williams or Cal Ripken was the better hitter.

I figured as much, but thinking about the increased attendance over the past few years made me think about how awesome our fanbase is....it'd be nice to see some attendance numbers (actual) that show how strong Birdland actually is.....

I think that almost everyone from all of the different fan bases would say that Ripken Jr.'s streak is vastly more impressive, but it is particularly strange to be asking about it here, don't you think?

Attendance is fine in Baltimore. We have another good team 25 miles away.

I was there when 2131 was unfurled on the Warehouse...still have chills everytime I think about it. Maybe a touchy comparison on these boards, but the post was meant to spark a discussion about OPACY attendance than to incite a actually rally for Ripken's feat....
