I am going to say something so blindingly objectionable to the longsuffering Tigers fans that, even across the many miles to where I sit ensconced in safety and comfort, I tremble a little bit.
I HATE BASEBALL! It is a game only for the seriously bored and those who live in places like Michigan.
OUCH! Dang it! (That was my wife pulling a small hair on my leg out)
So, anyway, baseball. All these guys get together and play a very, very long game.
Football I get. The guys are huge. They crash into each other. They sweat alot. Mostly people get hurt and carted off in ambulances. And, they have scantily clad girls jumping around who seem very happy no matter what happens. (That's a big advantage of being questionably intelligent and beautiful--everything is wonderful and you don't even know why!).
the other nice thing about football is that it gets over with. You do some eliminations and stuff and then you have this huge game in January (that's the Superbowl, for you baseball types). One game. That's all.
Baseball guys have to play dozens of games just for the chance to play another seven games. At a certain point one of the teams just says, "Heck with it" and slumps off in boredom.
Another thing. In baseball, you hardly ever have any fights. You don't foul each other. Almost no drama.
Quite probably, baseball is the least exciting major sport--well, maybe with the exception of Major League Quilting.
