I will add, just for clarification, that the University of the Incarnate Word (where this professor teaches) is located in San Antonio, 200 miles from Houston.  There was no parade in San Antonio.

Honest question from a Euro-idiot, how does baseball do as a TV sport?

Yep.  Boring AF.  If you're asking ratings wise I honestly have no clue.

No, I was thinking personal entertainment. I do like a bit of cricket on the TV and that can be slow, but baseball seems even more sedate.

Greatest game there is. There's a lot more going on in baseball than a casual observer would ever realize.

But mainly during the postseason and the run up to it in terms of watching it on TV.

Always fun live.
Think it, be it.

@neph93 I think that’s subjective. If you like baseball or not. I had 81 game season tickets to
The Yankees for 25 years and it was fucking awesome. I went to
Every single home Yankees play off game from 1995-2010. It wasn’t boring at all. Some
People just like to shit on everything. Most Americans feel that soccer has no action and much less scoring. Again subjective. I think soccer is great but I do like it more when there is
More scoring. Ask the Red Sox fans how boring it was to see them beat the shit out if the Yankees 16-1 a few nights back.

It really depends on how big of a fan you are. Baseball Is my favorite sport. I played organized  ball until I was 40 and I mourn the loss of it.  I actually prefer to watch games at home as opposed to going to the stadium now.  years of late nights at amazing games has left me tired of beer prices and sitting in traffic.

If I could play ANY sport professionally it would be baseball. You sit around with your buddies Telling jokes and talking shit and you get PAID to PLAY baseball. That to me sounds like paradise

A-Fucking-men @mclaincausey  ...if you don’t know then you just don’t understand.

Absolutely not true.  I grew up playing baseball for 11 years (first baseman and pitcher) and I lived and breathed it.  I joined hitting clinics....Duffy Dyer clinics every year.....summer and winter little league ball....multiple leagues...loved playing the sport.  I completely understand the strategy and everything that "the casual observer would never realize".  Watching baseball bores me to tears.  The season is ridiculously long and so are the games.

Sub jec tive. Sounds like you don’t like it. That’s fine. But throwing personal
Opinions at it and mking it gospel and fact, you weren’t the only one, is silly.

It is very sedate.  Perhaps George Carlin can help with assessing the game.
