I love baseball.

I know, I know, we wouldn't be wasting half our day thinking/writing/arguing about baseball on the internet if we didn't. But I think it's worth taking a moment to think about what a great game this is, and how it has captivated us to spend so much of our energy on it, even when we're obviously not the kind of people able to play it at the major league level. I usually find myself unable to explain to people why I listen to over a hundred games a year on the radio, why I drove almost three hours on a cold, rainly, Suppan-y school night to watch the Brewers play in Pittsburgh, and why I'm content to look at statistics online for hours and hours on end. So, without getting long-winded or trying to step on the toes of great baseball writers who can actually explain the wonderful aspects of the game in beautiful prose, I'd like to say to a community of people who really get it, "Damn, I love baseball."
