Angry Baseball

Why in the name of arse would ANYONE invent that loserish sport called Baseball.

Three reasons why it is about the dumbest sport ever played:

1) the games go at about 0.000005 miles per hour
2) everyone is in tight pants, even the fat people
3) the only high point in any game is when someone spits on the ump...and when it finally comes to an end...come to think of it

*thought any future baseballers would like to be warned...*

1. Sometimes we need something in life that reminds us that you can enjoy yourself at a slower pace.
2. Everyone should feel comfortable about themselves, no matter what their shape, size, or color.
3. Conflict is interesting, but not essential, and in fact, spoils the flow of the game ... and things could be worse. You could be watching Cricket. Those games go on for days, sometimes. What kind of sport has you come back the next day to finish, unless it rained?

hahahahahahahaha. no way. slow pace my ass. and don't even think about telling me anything about cricket. Oh, yeah. If people wanted something slow than they could just do a few laps in the pool or something, not broadcast it on live tV for all the terminally insane to watch. Also including the poor souls who are forced to watch.

You're just saying that because you're Canadian and you don't have a National Pastime.

And don't even try claiming hockey. Who has more teams?? No, no. I don't CARE that we're importing players from you and the countries formerly known as the Soviet Union ... what cities have the teams, baby?? And while we're at it, what's the deal with making the field a teensy bit longer and calling it Canadian Football, like it's a new damn game or something??

I do like the fact that Canadian football only has 3 downs.

We have a national sport. It's called lacrosse.
Seriously, Canada's official sport is not hockey.
And if you're not familiar with the game, it's rough.
If everyone on the baseball diamond got a bat and was free to use it, it might be as rough as lacrosse.

Yay! Some people just don't get it! National sport my face, and I no nothing of Lacrosse, so I'll just stay of that topic. Hockey is only fun when people get into those scraps. That's about it.

I'm just saying that baseball is a pointless invention, a waste of money, and a waste of many hours that it is recorded onto the TV. K?

In the middle ages that would have been very, very cool.

Bestest with the mostest. More to love. Etc.

Don't worry, dude. I establish my prejudices one person at a time rather than by belonging to a class. Except for the French.

Canada's not much better: social insurance, the sponsorship scandal, QE2 as head of state, Quebec, etc.

The US was the first country to experience the type of economic growth that allowed the general end of scarcity for its middle class, the first to find that "calories per person" was no longer an important statistic to track, so yes, it is in fact something to be proud of.
