I hate sports. I really do. I can play Basketball or a basketball game where you shoot fire from your ass to do a sideways slam dunk, but baseball? Baseball is just god damn boring. Its so slow, and useless. Does anyone besides those ignorant morons that love to vote and go to church actually like baseball? I mean really. I hear that its americas past time, and think “Captain America would hate baseball as much as I do.” or “Baseball is to slow for americans, we demand a game where you kill people within an hour, not sixteen like baseball.” Baseball is just mind numbingly crappy. The rules suck. The best injuries are self induced from steroids the testicals, which is kind of ironically stupid, since anyone who plays baseball automatically has no testicals.

I was wondering, what do you guys think about the shitties sport of all?

baseball sux cuz it requires a large field to play properly. Other sports you can improvise.

You can have a makeshift basketball court in your garage, you can just draw a line on the street with chalk when you play makeshift soccer, hockey, badminton, volleyball, etc.

You know, some say that baseball is not a sport, but instead a grand exercise that allows you to enjoy the cadence of a summer's day.

Kickball is much better than baseball. It takes out all of the stupid accuracy stuff with that tiny ball, and replaces it with the awesomeness of kicking stuff around. It's like dodgeball, except there's more kicking involved. And running.

I hate baseball as well.
My sport is Wrestling(NOT WWE), Boxing,a nd Basketball.
Also on the subject of bad sports,
Golf is way more boring than Baseball..
Other than that Basketball should be America's Game.

Most of the time baseball is boring to watch. But if its a good game, the score is close, almost everybody is hitting the ball and not just walking or striking out, and if you are in the stadium watching the game, then it can be fairly fun to watch especially with some food in one hand and a beverage (preferably beer) in the other. But besides that, yeah its as boring as watching piece of shit decompose. And playing it can be pretty boring as well, unless you get you're adrenaline pumping by just barely sliding home and scoring the winning run or perfectly timing a double play. Besides those rare occasions plus a few others, baseball as bland as a sport can be (except for golf, curling, and any other craptacuarly boring sports you can think of.

Meh… baseball only seemed fun when I played it in little league… and even then it was boring… even though I was the catcher who got hit in the head with the pitched ball constantly >>

But I agree, baseball isn't fun to watch… and it really isn't fun to play either, unless you have an aluminum bat… and a tennis ball… and really good aim… and an apartment complex to break the windows of… yeah… that would rule…

I really liked playing baseball when I used to. I can't stand watching it. And I don't particularly admire all the bigshot pros and their steroids, and their going on strikes when they don't get paid as many millions of dollars as they want.

Same can be said for many other sports too. When you get down to it, sports ARE dumb and boring if you aren't playing them yourself, or at least watching them live in a stadium. TV broadcasts just don't really cut it. There is too much “outside stimuli” to keep you from getting immersed into it.

For me, baseball never really came back after the strike. Too bad, I was a big fan. I still like the Red Sox, but I don't get all fanatical about it anymore.

I heard that baseball used to be more fun to watch but then they re-formatted it to work around commercials and whatnot to make more money and now it's slow and boring. probably just a conspiracy theory though.

I'm a non athletic person. I HATE sports! damn sports! And watching sports is even worse! WHAT IS SO FUN ABOUT WATCHING OTHER PEOPLE PLAY GAMES?!?!

Needless to say, Dodgeball is the exception to this. As a matter of fact, they should a game called DodgeHog where you throw pigs at other people. That would rule!

I like baseball.
Buuuuut not enough to play it or watch ot on TV. I don't like any sport enough to watch it on TV - and baseball is my favorite sport.
I only enjoy it when I'm at the stadium - it's a picnic type feel - the guy sitting next to me could be a Red Sox fan, but we could still get along and tlak to each other.
Though the rivalries are feirce - I mean, at least on the East Coast, and by that I mean for New York and Boston (in my experience, though I'm sure there are more bitter rivalries than Yankees/Mets or Yankees/Red Sox).
I mean, never once in school did I get a dress down day as long as I wore a team logo for Hockey or Football or Soccer. Only for the Subway Series World Series a couple of years ago.
Then I think it also depends on your family - my dad is an avid Yankees fan, hence I am - so grew up going to Yankee Stadium and watching games.
It might also help that as far as sports go, Baseball is the only sport I understand the rules to.

Though these people still get paid a lot more than they deserve.

Swimming is the best sport. Ever.

Except to watch. Watching swimming is almost as boring as watching and playing golf.

I'm not a huge baseball fan. Heck, I'm not a huge fan of watching any sports. Playing them is more fun. I used to hate hockey (The kind without skates), but after playing it I found out I enjoy playing defese. Actually, I like playing defense in most sports, because all you have to do is hit the ball/puck away from you. Plus, you can hurt people.

But stuff like baseball and football is only fun if they add things to it, like baseball bingo. I enjoyed that. (It's gambling, but it depends on how good/crappy the team is.)

This is a STUPID debate. No one here really likes baseball very much…
What about sports in general? Soccer is probably the world's most popular sport. I generally find ALL sport tedius, but if I'm with someone who'se a real fanatic, it can rub off on me. Even soccer can be fun given the right atmosphere, especially around World Cup time.
Playing any sport is fun if you're good at it, or you're playing with good friends. I've never played baseball, but I've played softball and it's not too bad, can even be exciting. I image the same is true for baseball.

I find the Olympics dull though. There's no sport in the Olympics that interests me. And Cricket is even duller to watch than golf…
I think part of the problem is in the way sports are broadcast, most sport is meant to be seen live and doesn't translate well to TV or radio unless you're really interested in the outcome.

(Cricket is even dull live though, even playing it is not often too fun).
