When I read the N&R headline:

Sports vs. politics: Attendance trumps turnout in Walker-Berger race

I thought they were going to report more people went to last night’s Grasshoppers game than cast vote yesterday’s runoff.

Not the case but close —in Alamance County, where 3,642 votes were cast, while last night’s Hoppers game —which was competing with the MLB All-Star game on a rainy night –drew just over 3,000.

But attendance N.C. A&T’s football home opener did topped the number ballots in Guilford, Alamance and Rockingham counties.
