Anyway, enough about my emotional instability in regard to baseball. I love baseball in general and the Braves in particular. I am thankful that God has permitted this game to be invented and to be enjoyed. I don’t think there is any other game that equals baseball in its quality. I think that the popularity of sports like basketball and football over baseball represent a decline of all that is good and honorable. I cringe when I hear someone say that baseball is boring, because they obviously do not understand the complexities of the game that take place on every single play! I regret that football and basketball are attempting to eclipse baseball as the national sport, because I think it is a symptom both of our societies constant need to be entertained every single second and inability to slow down, think and relax.
I know many will be offended by my strong opinions about baseball. If you want to argue for your sports supremacy in the comments section, you may. I however will continue to believe that baseball is the greatest American sport, the national pastime and the game that I will pass down to my three sons!
Man, it felt good to get all that off my chest!
