No, not come on. I know what I like, and when I go to a baseball game, I want to watch baseball. I'm happy to bring friends along who aren't baseball fans (see my earlier post), provided that they are willing to at least appear interested in what's happening on the field.
Maybe I'm just being an ******* when it comes to things like this (it wouldn't be the first time I've rubbed people the wrong way around here). I just believe that a baseball game should be about baseball. That doesn't mean there's not a place for other things, but they should never supplant what's happening between the lines.
