Baseball season

Baseball is about tradition. I like teams that stay in the same venue. Over the past century, nations have risen and fallen, football's rules have evolved, and yet the Cubs remain at Wrigley Field.

Drive past the local ballpark around here, and you see a mutant apple logo on a animated billboard that's larger than my car. If I wanted electronic splash and dash, I'd stay home and play video games.

Come to think of it, electronic splash and dash is exactly what I want. So I will stay home and play Modern Warfare 2, which I would imagine is more fun and less expensive than a real war.

The ads for the local team say "Play Downtown." Unless they are holding tryouts for the team, this is misleading. They should say "Sit On Your Fat Ass And Watch Other People Play Downtown."
