We've talked a lot about ticket sales for the Miami Marlins' home opener in the last month. There was the short line when tickets went on the sale, the buy-one-get-one-free offers, the Groupon deal, the Little Caesars challenge.

Look for Adelson's story later about the scene in South Florida. We're not going to opine on this one. We'll wait to hear from Adelson and you readers.
