Now thats actually a problem that arose because the football side is SO much more POPULAR than the baseball side.
Peoples posts were being pushed off the first page so quickly, that some were getting no replies, so when someone posted a response to a question, they in turn asked people to respond to their questions.
I really enjoy a game of baseball, a few beers and a hot dog. Baseball was my first American sporting love, but football is the more exciting game, there really is no denying that. Baseball has football beat in as much as you get so many more games to watch, however, if I was forced to pick a sport to watch for eternity, it wouldnt be baseball.
since I have to prepare for 162 games vs 16, I study this baseball stuff 365. anyways I came across this today and it instantly reminded me of this thread, and why baseball is the only real sport in America.
I was thinking about something else, though--baseball is the only major sport in America where the players are guaranteed to get dirty. Twenty-six fields are some variety of grass, and outfielders who make diving grabs come up smeared in green, just like we do when we play at our local fields. Slide into second in shorts and you look like Pigpen, and that's the same in every ballpark in baseball.
They play on Astroturf in Minnesota, and dirt around the bases. Tropicana Field's got Astroturf and a whole dirt infield. SkyDome in Toronto has AstroGrass, while Olympic Stadium in Montreal is waiting on a new fake surface for next year.
But every field has dirt. Football wants to be a down and dirty game, but there are more teams with artificial surfaces. Players in those stadiums walk away from every game without contact with anything natural, no matter how many times they tackle someone to the plastic, or dive to make a stunning catch.
OK, there might be some blood on the uniform, but then where's the dirt to rub on your cut? Dirt, as anyone who played baseball in less-enlightened times knows, is some sort of miracle antibiotic and pain reliever. Scrape yourself up sliding into second? Rub some dirt on it. Ground ball take a sharp hop into your nose? Dirt. If A.J. Burnett's elbow had actually exploded on the mound, Torborg would have told him to suck it up and rub some dirt on it.

Natural with artificial enhancements.
This cracked me up:

Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
