Danged Baseball

OK, seriously now. We have been busily maligning baseball and its adherants. We have been right, too.

Right now I am watching another grinding, excruciating game between the Tigers and the Cardinals. The problem is (this is BIG, so scootch your chairs up a little closer gang) BASEBALL HAS NO MOMENTUM. The winner is just the beneficiary of near terminal boredum on the part of the other team.

So, anyway, I feel sort of bad bringing such a sore subject back up. I really do. We've already been kibbitzing loudly. I just can't help it.

This is a pitiful, sorry bleat of misery. I can't....reach...the....remote....or...the....beer

AdherEnts, boy, adherents. AdherAnts are those li'l bugs that stick to your sugarbowl in damp and windy weather.

I guess the biggest question for baseball haters is...WHY WATCH??? I have to admit that I have been following the Tigers' run of late. Not because I have become a baseball convert, but because it is the World Series and the Tigers are playing.

And the Cardinals just won anyway. As President Jerry Ford predicted, our long national nightmare is finally over.

Jacob "Pickle Weasel" Nordby said...

Yeah. I am just to weary to care now.

Actually, I was really sorry to see the Tigers lose. Mostly because I have a baseless and inexplicable hatred for the state of Missouri. Please don't ask me to explain. I just said it was inexplicable.

Oh, and thank you Crack Pot...er, Foodaddy's Pappy. You are right and I am wrong. The spelling IS adherent(s) as you so keenly point out.

Hooray! No more baseball until next spring! Maybe my TV will break before then. HOO, HOO, HOO, HOO!

PW, mind explaining why you hate Missouri? (Sorry, I couldn't resist. Actually, I could, but I didn't want to.)

foodaddy's foodaddy said...

Yeah, what's he got against the home state of: Samuel Clemens? Don Johnson? Walter Cronkite? Sheryl Crow? TS Eliot? Pat Metheny? Yogi Berra? Harry Truman, whom even Garage W. Bush wishes he was? William "Naked Lunch" Burroughs? Charles "Where Would Herman Miller Be Without Me" Eames? Jack Kilby, co-inventor of the microchip? Robert Altman? Me? Marlon Perkins? and John Goodman, for goodnessakes?

Well, Stupe and FooDaddy's Daddy (aka Crackpot, or CrackPipe, I can't remember which)...

I really didn't research my reasons for NOT liking Missouri, but ol' CrackPipe here has obviously done his homework. I didn't say I had a problem with PEOPLE from Missouri, just the state itself.

Actually, my statement was simply an illogical, emotional sweeping edict.

I have a problem with states that are high in humidity, bugs and toothless folks :) (Idaho has no humidity, very low bug content but DOES have alot of toothless people)

Paul "FooDaddy" Brand said...

Yeah, gotta agree withya there, Nordby. Any damp states with a lotta skeeters can count me out.

Planning on moving? Because I think PW was including Michigan in his little explanation.

Jacob "Pickle Weasel" Nordby said...

Well, no offense, but...yes.

Actually, I miss Michigan twice a year.

#1). Summer Saturday afternoons. I loved walking the Grand Haven lakeshore (or the Traverse City lakeshore, or the Petoskey lakeshore).

#2). Autumn Saturday afternoons. I loved to go sit on the deck at Rosey's restaurant over on the edge of Reed Lake in East Grand Rapids on a sunny fall day. Hard to compare anywhere to Michigan in the fall (yeah, Idaho's still better, but...)
