Owner threatens move, fans don't care
sonenlaw, owner of the Atlanta InFuego (5-95) threatened to move the team to Cleveland if fans didn't start showing up. Both fans in attendance at last nights game were asked about the threat. Both said they only took the tickets because they were promised a free hot dog, which was never delivered. When asked to comment, the mayor of Atlanta denied that the InFuego even played in the city.
Attempts to reach the sonenlaw were unsuccessful. However, team president, Rachael Phelps, best known for owning the Cleveland Indians team that won a one-game playoff with the hated New York Yankees had this to say: "I don't know where people get these ideas in their head. Just because Willie Mays-Hayes claims I wanted the team to lose doesn't make it true. He didn't even have the stones to show up for the sequel."
When asked whether Atlanta was implementing a similar strategy in an attempt to force a move, Phelps was non-committal, "I don't know what the hell the owner is doing. Can any of you figure it out?"
Meanwhile, Mexico City owner dyuen denied reports that nude cutout of Phelps was being displayed in the Bandejos clubhouse, with clothing being removed one win at a time.
