9. We wanted to do more Top Ten Lists.
8. Something to talk about besides deflated footballs.
7. One of our ushers went to Ball State...Go Cardinals!
6. Stupid Pet Tricks between innings.
5. He is retiring...not that complicated folks!
4. More fun than using May 22nd game to celebrate birthday of Sir Laurence Olivier
3. If Derek Jeter was honored in 30 major league ballpark, Letterman deserves one minor league ballpark.
