    ***Official Ugh...It's Baseball Season Thread***

    Please before you run for the pitchfork realize I am a fellow Cyclone and Human. I just can't stand baseball. I guess I would go to a game if free tickets were offered to enjoy the women, beer, and the weather, but not the game. If Iowa State had baseball I would most likely support it, but would not advocate taking money from the wrestling program (as an example) to get it started up. Don't get me wrong, I played baseball throughout High School and was a pretty good outfielder. I have tried the game and I know the rules and nuances of it. It is just so boring. The worst part is that Sportscenter will be dominated by the same homeruns, double plays, and diving catches for the next 5 months. You may commence the crucifixion if necessary.

    Baseball is the best sports season. Great weather, great beer, great women, and great sport.

    You and your nine posts all suck.

    Re: ***Official Ugh...It's Baseball Season Thread***

    So why did you start this thread? Do you start threads that state that you aren't fans of other sports too or are you just a debbie downer for baseball?

    Just curious why you felt that you needed to say that?

    This is by far the easiest way to get into a sport, but I agree with the OP. It's hard to care about a sport with no pro teams nearby that is boring to watch on TV (which is admitted by many baseball fans I've talked to).

    Sorry about your affliction. Now sit down so I can see what's up in the bullpen.

    football is Jerry Bruckheimer movie fans
    and
    Baseball is Wes Anderson movie fans.

    Football is loud and obnoxious and explosions and colors
    Baseball makes you actually have to think.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    it is terribly boring but the atmosphere and the food (actual footlong chili dogs are amazing at wrigley) makes it worthwhile
