Shipping uranium to Turkey is no 'deal'
If they DID change baseball's rules, it would be a better game, but I still wouldn't watch it. I don't watch sports on TV. Some of the commenters on yesterday's post compared my proposed version of baseball to the way they play or have played the game. And that's the answer. Sports are to be played, not watched. Certainly not on TV. Sports can be fun. A LOT of fun. Watching somebody else have fun on television is not having fun. It is outsourcing your life.
Isn't sports the best thing on TV? HIGH DEF! Maybe. I don't watch the other stuff on TV either. When is a good time to watch? As the Bob Mankoff New Yorker cartoon put it about meetings: "No, Thursday's out. How about never? Is never good for you?" Never watching TV is good for me. Okay, ALMOST never. I used to be an addict. Now I'm a recovering addict. But when I turned off the TV, I found out I had a LOT of time and a lot of incentive to do other things. You might too!
But don't I need to watch the current crop of political analysts discuss politics as if it WERE baseball in order to do my job as a cartoonist? Survey says: NO. I've essentially missed a whole decade's worth, and I seem to have survived. It's possible that spending too much time on the computer falls into the same category. That's why I keep these posts short.
