    Default World Series

    I usta watch baseball but don't anymore. It seems very slow now, and there were a lot of commercials one after another which I hate.

    Anyway, they're 1 and 1, and the score was 0 all. I'm pulling for the Cubs.

    I always enjoy watching the World Series. I usually go to a few baseball games each season, but never watch regular season baseball on TV. I've enjoyed the series so far. Don't really care who wins, but if I had to pick I would go Cubs.

    Go Cubs Go!
    These four hour+ games are not going to draw in the younger now-now-now viewers like they want though. Really hoping the Cubs can come back now that they're down 2 games to 1.

    I used to love baseball...............but it has gotten so slow, that I now only watch baseball during the WS. Even with that, and what should be historically an important (at least in baseball terms) WS, I can't make through more than 2 or 3 innings. Just too damn slow.

    This is why I never watch until the World Series either. Once Cleveland got up last night I turned it off. Probably won't even watch game 5.

    Have slways enjoyed GOOD baseball, but the long major league season can make many games tiresome. If the schedule was cut by about 30-50 games a year, it could create more excitement at the fan and player level.

    Am enjoying this World Series, mainly because of the two managers and watching a few former TB Rays players doing well.

    With a 3-1 lead, Cleveland is definitely in a great position to win the series. If Cleveland does, an old baseball song may be edited a bit and making the rounds again...

    As a Florida resident, I can assure you that watching paint dry is far more interesting, and certainly quicker.

    I'm not a sports fan. I'm just not competitive. IT is just a game and I don't understand how winning a game has any value at all. That said, my father-in-law is a baseball fan and it is his life during the season. He sits with the remote in hand and switches from one game to the next, watching as many as he can at one time. So for him, I try to watch at least part of each game during the world series, just so we have something to talk about. But there is just something about a game where one player throws a little ball out there in front of other players taking turns with a bat, ninety or a hundred times, and if no one hits the ball it is a great thing. How can that be interesting?
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.
