How the hell is this our supposed american pastime? It is boring as hell. “Ball, ball, foul tip, strike, ball, oh woopy doo he got a single” It is so slow paced and drawn out, not to mention there are 300 games a year. How can people really get into this? I mean sure they need hand-eye coordination but that’s it! !
I mean David fat ass Ortiz perhaps plays a whole 15 minutes of a 3 and a half hour game, I am clearly not impressed with his athleticism. On to Nascar. What is there to say really? I mean 30 cars turn left for 3 hours. You must be severely impaired intellectually to get into this so called sport. And please dont tell me you watch with the anticipation of crashes, that is just so god damn deranged and sadistic.
You’re fucking kidding, right?
What sports do you watch?
How far do you want it simplified?
Well I watch football, basketball, hockey, and hell even world cup soccer is more entertaining.
You don’t belive that when an outfielder has to run all out, while keeping track of a fly ball over his shoulder, leap in the air and catch it while hitting the fence isn’t a sport? Well seeing that this happens at most once a game, I am not really impressed. Bottom line is its a lazy sport and baseball’s athletes do not put in half the effort that the athletes do in the sports I just mentioned above.
As far as auto racing, it is a sport of endurance and reflexes. I have been just as physically exhausted after a race as any game or workout I have ever had. Ok sure, but watching? Come on! The cars keep fucking turning left for three hours. Who in their right mind can sit through that?
While these two sports may not appeal as interesting to you doesn’t mean you have to hate on them.
You may be right but I just do not understand people’s interest in them.( watching that is.)
