Give me a break!

This pisses me off. Why must we put advertisements on EVERYTHING? We have enough advertisements around us ALL THE TIME, why on earth do we have to put Spiderman ads on bases? This has to end!

The promotion, announced Wednesday, is part of baseball's pitch to appeal to younger fans.

How? Who, other than the players and people watching tv, are going to see these ads on the bases? If young fans are going to the game solely because there's a Spiderman ad on a base, then the sport is dead. If you want the sport to appeal to younger fans, make it easier for families to go. Decrease the ticket prices, make the players available for autographs and pictures. We should go to the game to see our 'heroes' running the bases, not to see super heroes ON the bases.
