Baseball, is that the game with the ball, stick and those U-shaped hoops on the ground you gotta get the ball through?
Re: Baseball fan?
Baseball is THE best sport invented because of the simple fact that the defense has the ball. There is nothing tougher in all of sports than hitting a round ball with a round bat, when the pitcher is trying his damnedest to throw it by you.
Football? Basketball? nope - the offense has the ball and is trying to advance it with the help of teammates toward the goal. Hockey? Golf? nope - the offense is in control of the puck/ball, and in golf the damn thing is sitting still. NASCAR? Bowling? Swimming? nope. nope. nope. The list goes on. (okay maybe, just maybe Cricket comes close.)
Michael Jordan, arguably the best basketball player in NBA history couldn't make the transition... hitting .202 career for the White Sox AA farm club. He couldn't even break into AAA.
Baseball is the best TEAM sport as well. When your team is down in baseball, the coach can't just call the star player's number to take the final shot or carry the ball to get a critical first down. In baseball, you have to wait for your star player to come up. The TEAM is only as good as their weakest player.
No, I've found that the folks who don't like baseball can't play it, or never took the time to understand it in the first place.
