@cengland0 I feel it goes even deeper this year. I haven’t heard anything from coworkers, since we’re all working from home. And I just sort of didn’t think about it til now. I vaguely remember seeing pics of cardboard cutouts in the seats of a stadium, but that may have been hockey or football. I couldn’t have named the teams playing without the poll listing them.
@simplersimon I’m not a sports fan at all but even if I was, baseball would still be one of those sports I couldn’t watch. It’s so boring with too much time between any event that is exciting.
Baseball is too subjective and each call could be debated. Was it a strike or a ball? Did the batter swing far enough to call a strike or did he stop? Did the player make it to first base or was he tagged out? Was the ball in play or was it a foul?
@cengland0@simplersimon It’s way more fun live. We have a good summer league team here and a great college team. I like going with a friend or family member and eating lots of chili dogs, chips and cheese and other stuff guaranteed to shorten your life. Every time I’ve gone it’s been relaxing yet fun. If I drank it would probably be even more fun (and expensive).
@ebatch Well, it’s just our small part of the world. But we called it world because well, was there a world outside of the continental US? Many didn’t think so or care back when it was named. More still don’t think so or care, apparently.
We’re just a small % of the WORLD, people. DEAL WITH IT!
Problem with baseball…little action. Read an article the other day…the time it took to play world series games in 1920 averaged under two hours. Now a “fast” game is just under three hours, and its not surprising when a game goes almost four hours. If I watch a game, and that’s not very often, I read something, and if the audience gets loud or the broadcasters get loud, I watch the replay. Watching nothing but strikeouts and home runs is kind of boring. I’d rather watch a game of slow pitch softball, where the ball is in play a lot.
I didn’t even know they played this year. I still surprised I’m alive. My mom was a Brooklyn Dodgers fanatic and I was a toddler when they were in the series. I’m sure nobody was watching me at all when the game was on! Oh, by the way, Boston…the only time NY thinks about you is if the Yankees are playing the Red Soxs that day. Other than that, nobody cares.
Rooting for the Rays, but Dodgers clearly have the more talent and if forced to guess, I would say LA comes out on top. But in baseball more than any other sport, the team with the better players doesn’t always prevail.
