witnessing one of the greatest world series games of all time live is a nice distraction from football I guess
Nard was 100% right about baseball btw
I'm 100% right about everything. Especially baseball. There is nothing more intense than post season baseball.
Especially if you are aware of all the strategy involved. Its the most rewarding sport to watch. There is purpose behind every single pitch. Theres no randomness to it at all.
still learning as this was my first full season, was taken originally as a joke to torture me, ended up getting pissed and loving it, went again and paid more attention this time, atmosphere is brilliant, Kershaw converted me
not proud of being a full time yank now but I forgot how much I love sports

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Baseball. The strategical aspect is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the plays will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also the overall systematic outlook, which is deftly woven into the culture of the sport- it's personal philosophy draws heavily from David R. Cox studies, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the analytical, sabermetric approach to the sport, to realise that it's not just purposeful- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Baseball truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the concept behind “Moneyball” which itself is a cryptic reference to Michael Lewis' "The Art of Winning an Unfair Game". I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Clayton Kershaw's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them.
And yes, by the way, I DO have a Yankees tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.
Baseball is the sport for idiots. Only someone like Nard would consider it to be good. Its just a bunch of fat lards with steroid problems hitting a ball 1/3 times as the pitcher scratches hit nuts because they communicate to each other by rubbing their hands around their dicks. I can see why Nard would enjoy it as I type this out.
People that say baseball is boring truly are idiots. It isn't a sport for simple people. When I hear people say that all it tells me is that you have ADD.
And this myth of baseball players being fat is dumb as well. What about american football with offensive line, defensive line and linebackers? These are the fatest people in sports and its their job to just stay fat.
If you don't like it thats fair. Saying its boring just means you don't have patience or the ability to stay focused on something longer than 2 minutes. 100% a fact.
