    Anyone else disinterested in baseball this year?

    Or maybe its just because I am a Cubs fan. Its just like I don't even want to or care to watch any game. Even if its the only thing on ESPN, i'll switch it to something else. It just has seemed like it has got boring to watch and baseball use to be my favorite sport. This year i'm even glued to watching the NBA Finals, and i NEVER ever have liked the NBA or the Finals. I'm not even sure if i'd watch if the Cubs were even winning. Anybody else just get disinterested in it? It is quite a boring sport.

    I was jacked when my Rockies jumped out to an 11-2 record then the roofed caved in and they fell back to mediocrity and my interest left. Luckily in a month Big Brother starts and that will get me through these crappy months till college FB returns.

    This just seems to be a givin. Even if they are good during the regular season, we can just expect a down fall in the playoffs.

    not gonna lie, it is pretty hard to be interested in a pro sport when your team is struggling. luckily for me, thats not the case in baseball this year.

    I love baseball. Even though the Dodgers are not good, I am still ready for every game as if they are in 1st. Games like today of course always help!

    I'd say if the Cubs were good you would be into it. But they aren't. I am still very into baseball every year even tho the Cards were no good last year and are doing well this year (so far).

    Re: Anyone else disinterested in baseball this year?

    How can the Cubs be so bad so many years in a row? Are they trying to catch Philadelphia for most losses?

    Re: Anyone else disinterested in baseball this year?

    I'm loving it, watching more baseball this year then ever. I agree it helps when your team is playing well. Easy to get disinterested when your team isn't playing good ball. Only sport I don't feel that way for is football. Cowboys can disappoint me or have a stellar year, no matter, I'll still be in front of the TV every sunday...maybe i'm more into baseball this year out of fear of possible no NFL. Idk.
