    I love baseball. Am watching it right now, and have a gamecast going on my phone for another game.

    Baseball is the only game I can enjoy watching.

    Baseball is mostly about hand-eye coordination. And the "perfect" game is where no one actually manages to hit the ball.

    Baseball is the only ball sport I enjoy going to games to watch. And the only ball sport I ever enjoyed playing as a kid. It's fun, simple to play and understand and you can just sit back and have a good time watching it without having to give it all of your attention. Grab a hot dog and a beer and enjoy time with friends while watching the game.

  7. Amen Bill the Cat amen'd this post.

    Exactly. And do the wave! And get a bag of peanuts from the peanut vendor!

    Yeah, baseball is okay to watch live with friends. The game is a nice background activity that happens to grab your attention every once in a while.

    That's what makes it great. You can watch it attentively and enjoy it, or just as a background activity and still enjoy it. Unlike something like basketball where if you blink you miss something important and have to give all of your attention to the game at the expense of enjoyment with friends. It is why baseball is called a pastime.

    That's why basketball is actually exciting to watch.
