I don't mind baseball.  I think their broadcast strategy is bat-shit crazy, but I've enjoyed a LOT of lazy summer days at baseball stadiums all over the country.

If it weren't for commercial breaks the players in football wouldn't get twenty thousand free time outs during the game.

And oh yeah, we MIGHT have gotten to bed earlier than fuggin' 1:30 am this morning. Great game, but damn.
