The sport that perfectly captures what Americans want in sports: Very little action to cater for the usually non-athletic players, mind-numbing stopping and starting, for the ADD-affected fans, and a whole lot of gayness. It is basically a girl's game(rounders) that has been over-hyped so Americans don't feel stupid. Created, like most American sports, because Americans can't win at any true international team sports. Americans needed a game which required characteristics only Americans had I.e. the ones stated above, so Baseball was born. Definitely a lot better than American "football" though. That definitely takes the cake for the most boring, unpopular, fat boy gay ritual. No American "football" fan can hate on Baseball.boreballsleepballfatballsteroidballhot-dog ball
American sports fan: Hey, did you catch the baseball game last night?
TRUE sports fan: No. It must have been a very exciting game. *giggles.* What were the highlights?
American sports fan: Oh, there were Budweiser commercials, and Doritos commercials, and there were some fat spectators fighting....
TRUE sports fan: I'm talking about the game itself. Why did you watch it? Were there any homeruns etc.
American sports fan: Now you know no one watches sports for sports sake, right? We watch for the ads, the cheerleaders..
