So I wait 5 months for baseball to resume and they are in a goddamn rain delay in the top of the 6th inning.

Goddamn it.

It's baseball. You're supposed to nap between pitches, what's your hurry?

Pretty sure that seventh-inning-stretch thing was about folks waking up ... or at least it serves that purpose!

Min, I didn't know you were a baseball fan.  Somehow I don't picture you having the patience to watch a baseball game.  I'd think you'd be cursing out the umpire most of the time - and stuff like that.  But I guess you never know about people.    Dunno

Hey, I was Chief Umpire for our Little League for 5 years. 

But baseball is great.  You can play around on the computer, look up when the announcer says "here's the pitch" see if anything happens and then go back to what you were doing until the next pitch.  Very time efficient!

Hockey is tougher for that.

I went to a couple of Giants games way back when. Both were against the Dodgers, Garvey on first and Guerrero in center field (church group, funny enough, took me there).

Someone still had to nudge me for the stretch. The stadium (Candlestick) was more interesting than either of the games.

I got to games in San Diego, Phiily, Cincinnati, Boston, Yankee Stadium, Shea Stadium, Ebbets Field ( when I was about 6 ) and almost got to Camden Yards but the Orioles were on the road when we arrived.

That's interesting.  For over twenty-five years I have lived about ten miles from the stadium where the Phillies play, and have never watched a full game on TV, let alone in person.

I havent watched a game in a long time, but Phillies are my team all day. When you're able to, hit the stadium and sink a beer for me! It's unlikely I'll be there any time soon  Dunno

I am still trying to get the rules of Baseball, does not seem to me the easiest game to play, though I am always amazed by how the game can be loved by other countries, such as Japan, Cuba etc etc.
I prefer Football...
Anyway, once I heard a interesting explanation by my prother in law on the 3 major US sports: baseball --> farming, Football industrial manufactring and basket service sector, and I find it fairly understandable

Last live baseball game I went to was somewhere in Japan, Kanto Plain area IIRC. They used to hire gaijin to hit home runs. Now I hear the players have muscled up. They still went nuts over Mark McGwire.

Quote:In defiance of Trump, every player took a knee at MLB return

President Donald Trump has long complained about players taking a knee before professional sporting events to protest police brutality.
But as Major League Baseball returned on Thursday night, every single player took a knee.
The protesters were started by former San Francisco 49’ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016.
Before the game, “BLM” was painted on the pitcher’s mound to show support for Black Lives Matter.


Quote:The first pitch was thrown out by Dr. Tony Fauci, 79, whose pitch was not a strike.

Not only was it not a strike it was ample proof that he made the right decision to go into medicine and not baseball.
