Located in Miami, Florida, the Marlins were a franchise that began it's genesis in the early 1990's during the end of Major Leage Baseball's expansion boom. After settling in the former Don Shula stadium, the team was welcomed by a typical fiery fanbase that prides itself on being a "multi-cultural" society. Soon though the welcoming applause fell out the window, and the fans soon realized that like most expansion teams, this one sure did suck. After many mediocre to ill-failed seasons, the Marlins finally found success in 1996 after beating the Cleveland Indians in the Fall Classic. Fortunately for "Tribe Fans" it was actually a good thing that a worthless, economic failure had beaten their beloved original early twentieth century founded team, because the fanbase simply walked away after the Marlins failed and failed again in the next few seasons to close out the century looking like a true feces stain on Bud Selig's trousers. Of course, the fanbase would repeat their history again, by walking away from their team again, that they had so virulently supported during the 2003 World Series, when they defeated a very deserving Chicago Cubs squad to make it to the worst World Series ever to beat the undeserving "Evil Empire" Yankees. The Marlin fans are an odd sort, taking pride in investing their earned money on a team that wins terrible and forgettable 'Series. Of course, this just amounts to a group of truly uninterested and undevoted "Fairweather fans" that just show up IF their low scoring Marlins actually make it to the playoffs. The Marlins are once again finding the low point of the charts, as their forgettable players, fairweather fans and eyesore place in history books drift off into the Gulf of Worthlessness.
The Marlins only sell out when they are in the playoffs.
Yeah, the Marlins and the White Sox have won 3 of the worst World Series championships ever.
