Baseball is boring.
It’s the ultimate excuse for non-baseball fans.
I get it.
A large part of baseball is a whole lot of nothing. Ground out after ground out can get to be a bit much.
The no-hitter, one of the more rare and most exciting events in baseball, is by definition a game during which absolutely nothing happens (half of the time.)
If you’re not invested (emotionally, not financially, we don’t promote gambling here at the Crusade) in the game it can be a tough game to sit through.
But there has to be something there right? I mean would millions of people pack parks around the country season after season if the only appeal of the game was beer and peanuts?
True you have to sit through a lot of nothing, but it’s the moments of glory that make it worth being able to say that you were there from the beginning.
