Past America's Pastime

Why baseball? Out of any sport in the world we could pick to represent our nation as a whole we pick baseball? I guess it fits for the stereotypical American. Pick a sport which is the easiest to play when you are fat and out of shape. Yeah, that works pretty good. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying baseball is easy. It takes alot of technique, in fact, I'm horrible at it. But it doesn't take being in shape. Which is, I guess, what makes it the perfect sport for Americans. I can't wait to hear the reactions to this one.

One of my friends told me that they drove three hours last weekend to watch their college baseball team play. I thought, not only did they waste six hours driving but they wasted the rest of the day watching.
I could think of a million better things to do with a weekend. Actually I couldn't, if anyone can, please let me know.

Now, you may be wondering, why I am writing about baseball if I hate it so much. Well, it just happens that it is almost 55 degrees outside. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to go outside. I love sun and warmness, it's great.

Here's the thing - it's really only a waste if it is a waste to the person. Time wasting is nearly impossible to objectively gauge. Some people would say spending five hours playing through Lego Star Wars for the Game Cube is a waste - other people might say writing a novel is a waste.

Point taken. A good point it is. Have you been playing Lego Star Wars alot lately?
