Sports - Keeping Score

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I went to a couple of baseball games recently as part of my summer ritual.  I love watching baseball, especially in person.  I am actually sick of hearing people talk about how they hate watching it because it's too slow.  The fact of the matter is, if you watch the strategy in place the game is actually quite fast.

I might also add, if you watch a game on TV make sure Joe Buck isn't announcing it.  Because then I would agree, that it's super boring.

So this guy sitting next to me was keeping score during the game.  Who does that anymore?  Really? You could walk section upon section and not see anyone keeping score. It's a wonder the programs even have the boxsheet to fill in.

In fact the people I were with, could care less. They never heard of most of the players, had no idea what was going for much of the game. It was a social event, and talking was what it was all about. Talking, drinking, getting up 5 times to get food and use the rest room. 

Why even show up?  What's the point?  Why bother?

You might say I shouldn't be bothered or pay attention to those not watching the game.  Well if it was a handful of people, this could be the case.  But it was most of the people there.

I had to listen to some 30 something tramp from Chicago sitting behind me  spout on how she was going to marry the White Sox left fielder all game.  Are you kidding me?

Every now and again I'll hear an athlete go on about how smart Detroit sports fans are.  They are lying and just giving lip service.  It's not true. The fact of the matter is, most Detroit fans are dumb.  They don't watch the game, they don't pay attention, they have no idea what is going on. They don't keep score.
If they did, they wouldn't accept the mediocrity these teams are giving them.

Pay attention.

Keeping score is a must.
