Like this would happen in Boston: Mariners fans get a rave — for applauding the other team. And the circus, it turns out, doesn’t cost peanuts.

“A rant to the woman who had her large dog on the beach at Golden Gardens, 500 feet past the big No Dogs sign. Bystanders asked her if she knew the fine was as high as $500 and suggested she take the dog off the beach. She said, ‘I’m scared’ and walked on with the dog.”

“A rave for Seattle fans who enthusiastically applauded a flying catch by the Boston Red Sox right fielder even though it robbed the M’s of a hit. I am proud of our good sportsmanship.”

“A rave for all the 3-Day walkers as well as those skating to raise funds for MS Aug. 27. A rant for whoever allowed them to be scheduled at the same time in opposite directions on the Burke-Gilman Trail.”

” A huge rant to the Barnum & Bailey circus at the Everett Events Center. I’ve never been to a show or event where the snow cones ($12) cost more than the admission tickets ($8). $10 for cotton candy? $20 for a program? I felt like a real ‘clown’ paying $8 for lemonade. The greatest rip-off on Earth!”

“A rant to the guys at Bumbershoot who gave a hit of marijuana to a 13-year-old girl! Please spare us the secondhand smoke and go get high someplace else! You definitely damaged the true meaning of Bumbershoot.”

“A big rave to the woman who came to my rescue at a gas station in Snohomish. I had taken a wrong turn and ended up in Snohomish with no idea how to get home. This nice person took the time to lead me back to Highway 522 and put me on my way. It made my day and my weekend!”
