    the most athletic thing baseball players do is slowly jog from the place where they sit down to the place they stand around.

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

    Someone with some good sense. :lo5:

    I can accept if a football or basketball fan bashes hockey but a baseball fan? Fuck no....

    The object of baseball is to hit a ball..... Same as golf.

    Baseball :point:

    How about bowling? Curling? Shuffleboard? Skeet Shooting? Golf? Fat people can do them too.

    :jj: it's so easy and requires such little exertion that they can play two games back to back and when they're done still feel like they've spent the day sitting on the front porch sipping cold lemonade.

    This is out of hand! Next thing you know, you're gonna declare that sports bars aren't sports either.

    with the exception of a pitchers arm or getting hit by a baseball because you're too slow, uncoordinated, and fat to move out of its way, how do mlb players get injured? it's pretty much impossible to get injured playing that game in any other way than what i mentioned.

    By Dink's definition, football isn't a sport.
