We just strolled into Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown, Md., where the 2010 National Egg Toss Chapionship will commence after the Hagerstown Suns play the visiting Hickory Crawdads. We arrived in the bottom of the fourth inning to find many fans leaving the stadium with the Suns down 4-0.
There are literally dozens of fans here. That’s it. Okay, maybe more like 300. But no more than that. Many of them were streaming out the front gate when we arrived.
My Uncle Jim, who lives in nearby Frederick, is here with us. He asked a few of them why they weren’t sticking around for the egg toss.
“The what?”
So maybe we won’t have an audience worthy of most national championships, but I’m fine with that. The less competition, the better.
