Must Give Up Baseball. by tucsonmike on 7 May 2007 6:03am
 
For I am an addict. I was watching the Phillies Giants game on ESPN. I am worse at the ballpark where I can see the entire field.

An errant throw from third to first caused me to exclaim "Now I could have told him not to throw from that angle, of course he threw it wide!"

It is a blessing and sometimes a curse when you understand the strategy and things go wrong.

I cannot give it up though. Luckily, I am long past mumbling "put me in there."

The Suns lost their first NBA playoff game to San Antonio. I will have to hear it from my cousin, an insane Spurs fan. I hate being in San Antonio at this time of year...

Hah hah hah, Mike! At our age, spectating is the most we have to contribute. I'm keeping my viewing to only a few teams, and select matchups. Of course, I only watch on screen.

This MLB.TV is excellent. A guy can watch a condensed version and see the highlights of the game in 20 minutes! Not as relaxing as watching the whole game, but it's nice if you're trying to watch the team's whole season and are a few games behind.

I am in a baseball fantasy league and therefore HAVE to keep up with all major activities in the sport and notes on my own players almost daily. The price I pay to be in FIRST PLACE you know. *looks at nails and sighs too loudly*

So do you have MLB.TV, Cori? It's great. I installed a video card so I can view games full-screen on my TV but have yet to succeed in configuring it to work. I just wanna watch some ball, not spend the day at my computer!

Niiice, eh? I like the Onslow style response.

No Kaz, we cannot use creme eggs as softballs. They are hard to hit.
