  1. I used to think baseball was boring and simplistic until I tried something truly novel: paying attention. Now baseball is a tremendous joy to me, and to my new British family, who used to think that baseball was just like rounders – but now know better.

    As for the relative IQ’s of baseball enthusiasts, I would suggest a viewing of Ken Burns’ documentary, which is chock full dullards like Gerald Early, George Will, Shelby Foote, Studs Terkel, and Stephen Jay Gould.

    And Buck O’Neil is a saint.

  2. Well, well, well!!

    I contacted MLB and complained that their website was Microsloth Internet Exploder only and shut out the tens of millions (and rapidly growing) Mac user base from watching their online content.

    One of the catches I always use is to inform them that Microsoft no longer produces IE for the Macintosh platform, so their content is being shut out of a rather wealthy market share which their site may have a interest in having a presence in.

    This is the fifth time I’ve sent such a letter to a company and so far three sites have changed their practices from a Microsoft only solution.

    You can have the same success

    Just write a intelligent and formal letter and be pleasantly shocked one day.

    Remember Microsloth has brainwashed a lot of upper management types, if you don’t speak up, you don’t exist to them.

  3. Sleep is a necessary and vital biological function. It is essential to a person’s physical and emotional well being. Studies show that without enough sleep, a person’s ability to perform declines dramatically. It is estimated that 50 percent of the adult population is sleep deprived and these people would benefit from some good information about the many sleep aids that are available..

  4. Everyone knows that Baseball is the most popular game in the United States of America, with over eleven million Americans playing it. The goal of the game is to score as many points as possible. I can talk a lot about her and I know all the rules perfectly, since I played for the school team. If you are new to this, then it will be useful for you to read the article on the site where you will find all the information you need to studying this topic. Besides, here they tell why the popularity of baseball is so popular in the USA. Fun with a ball and a bat was already known at the end of the 18th – beginning of the 19th centuries. But baseball as we know it today appeared in 1845. In the early decades of the 20th century, baseball gradually became an integral part of the culture.
