Classy Move By Rays Fans

Fans of the Tampa Bay Rays, who have undoubtedly had a brutal offseason, did a really cool thing today. They put a full page ad in the Tampa Bay Times to thank Carl Crawford for all the great things he did for their franchise.

I can't say I have ever heard of something like this happening before. I have heard of athletes who have thanked the fans with full page ads, but I believe this is a first.

Kudos to all of you at DRaysBay for doing this really classy gesture. You would have every reason to bash him and be bitter, but it's good to see you take the high road. I'm sure Mr. Crawford will acknowledge this terrific gesture back to you at some point.

hi John. I wrote about this today, too. THEN I arrived here and saw you led with it. It's a great storry but I didn't find it anywhere but the Globe. But you already knew that. Have a great weekend, my friend. MSG is the place to be tomorrow as the UCONN women Huskies go for John Wooden's record of 88 straight. I cannot wait!

Have a great and safe weekend.

Whoops, wrong team, Peter. I meant Huskies, of course!
