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.

UPDATE: The official attendance at Monday's game was 34,439. Capacity is 36,742. Here's a story by Yahoo Sports' Eric Adelson about Marlins fans and the "decent turnout" to the home opener.
