Leaving early during a Marlins loss: Yes, No, Rarely

This is a topic I brought up on the excellent Florida Panthers SB Nation site, Litter Box Cats, and wanted to get a baseball take on it.

I have walked out on my favorite team before, the Florida/Miami Marlins, usually out of pure disgust for their play or when facing a beatdown by the opposing team. Some may deem me a bad fan, even though I sat through the longest game in Marlins history (6 hours, 10 minutes) that wound up being a loss, so one can't assume that because people leave means they are lousy fans. They may be the most die hard supporters ever, so much so that it pains them to watch a horrendous showing and they just gotta get away.

So what have you, Fish Stripes crowd? Have you ever walked out on the Marlins or any other sports team? Love to hear the horror stories...
