    Re: Baseball fan?

    I love college and MLB. Go Royals!

    Edit: I should mention I have Extra Innings and will watch the Royals almost every night...even during the 12 game losing streak. When KC has a rare off night, i'll spend the night flipping between games of interest (Red Sox and AL central teams)

    Love the Cubs, follow baseball all year. On a scale of 1-10, I'm probably a 7 or 8.

    Re: Baseball fan?

    I am a huge Cardinals fan but if I watch a game between two teams that I don't care about, it is far less interesting to me. I watch every pitch in a Cards game closely but I don't have near that level of attention for any other game.

    Re: Baseball fan?

    That fourth option is pretty harsh. I'd take sticking bamboo skewers under my fingernails than having Rosie O'Donell as my wife. But then again the pain would be equal.

    I'll catch a game every now and then but I really don't watch many pro sports (football is the exception) until the playoffs.

    Re: Baseball fan?

    The older I get, the more I love baseball. My inlaws(who are huge Nascar fans) think it's the most boring sport ever invented, but I love it for that reason. What a great social event to attend! You can talk friends,meet new people and have so much fun whereas some of those opportunities in the other sports are more limited during the event.

    Boy Nascar fans calling another sport boring, I'd take those comments with a pound of salt

    Watching Joe Mauer play three games in person this week gave me an even greater appreciation for the game. That guy is an amazing ballplayer.
