GREATEST BASEBALL FANS IN THE WORLD?

All things outside of Burning Man.

Postby Silver 2 » Fri Feb 11, 2005 10:53 pm

This is the first time I have opened this thread and that was on page 8. I had always assumed that it was a joke thread simply because it was about baseball. Which as a sport is a joke; I was once told that a no-hitter was the most exciting baseball game, correct me if I am wrong but that means that about 50% of the time all you are doing is watching two grown men play catch. All this excitement while watching another eight men stand around playing with themselves. Joy.

I do not mean to offend those who like watching men play with themselves.

One of the best statements about baseball I ever heard was a response to "Why do the fielders always seem to be, .... adjusting themselves" Answer: "Well madam, it's a slow game and a man has to do something with himself".
I like playing with fire.

Ok Silver. It's ok really...just bear in mind that one of the ways Union and Confederate troops were able to enjoy eachothers company, was to declare a truce and play "baseball"

I can't believe the Orioles are still in first place. Let me check my watch, they should be due for the "June swoon" any day now. Still, I haven't seen them start off like this in a very long time.

Yeah well your not exactly at the top of the game either!

I give the yankees a month before they over take the top if Steinbrenner doesn't keep doing the No No Nannett (sic) horse race thing!

I'm glad I'm a Cardinals fan. Unless it's an interleague series or the World Series I don't have to worry about no stinkin Yankees.

The mets are in a tight race in the Eastern Division. Tough one to call there.

But we are having fun in the ANL. Most exciting baseball ever!

don't tell anyone, ANYONE, but in 75 I rooted for the Met's and they won the series, from yes, the Red Sox. Traitor? no, I just didn't like Wade Boggs.
