        Not surprising. Baseball ceased to be a "cool" sport a long time ago. I think most of it stems from the fact that in the ADD world we have created, kids see baseball as being "slow and boring".

          And my interest has increased exponentially over that same period. That's mostly due to the Tigers' resurgence but I also realize baseball is an acquired taste and too many people don't posses the mental capacity to fully understand the game.

            So true with the "Mental Capacity" comment, Mike. They're both (baseball and football) great games, but one thing stood out as I watched the last couple of innings of last night's Rangers/Tigers game: the look of intense concentration on the faces of fans in the stands as the drama increased when Texas started chipping away at our lead. Over and over, it was as though one could almost read those fans thoughts as the wheels turned in their heads, trying to figure out how Leyland and his team were to solve the problems they were facing. Compare those fans with the typical fan shots on NFL games, people in their team's warpaint and costumes, pretty much savage and violent-looking, screaming unintelligible things at the top of their lungs.

            Waaaay different crowd at your typical NFL games vs. MLB games.

                    Everyone at an NFL game seems to be drunk.

                          • As slow as baseball is, I prefer it to going to an NFL game and being inundated with endless 3-minute TV time-outs. You don't realize how much those guys just stand around doing nothing until you go to a live game.

                            • The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of "Cat", and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept.
                              "I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it" she said.
                              "I think that's what he would have wanted".
