It's here and I can feel my pulse again; baseball is BACK.
And may I highly recommend enjoying it on radio. Here's my "Top NIne Reasons to Stay In and Do It Marconi Style":
9...Sit where you like, I mean ANYWHERE.
8...You'll never have that urge to brain the fathead next to you who won't shut the hell up about his team's idiotic stats: HE AIN'T THERE.
7...No moronic antics and inane music between innings. If you can't stand the radio ads, kill the volume when they invariably pop up.
6...Can't beat the ticket price.
5...The beer and hotdogs you're eating didn't cost the price of a small sedan.
4...Your imagination fills in the game if you've ever played it growing up. I believe the game is MORE vivid.
3...Toilet access is MUCH better.
2...The opportunity to engage in another project while keeping track of game details. I love drawing in my sketchbook during broadcasts (I did this sketch during tonight's Braves game against the Phillies)
1...If the game stinks, CLICK and grab another beer.
