First off…EP learns exactly what baseball is about on Twitter
EP: How can anybody watch baseball? I don’t get it…
Saucerpass: You don’t really watch baseball. it’s more like: you socialize with people while baseball is happening in the background
Sarah_Connors: you’re supposed to WATCH baseball?
EP: I guess not? So what do you do then?
Saucerpass: when you go to a game, you’re not supposed to watch it. you’re supposed to focus on your $30 hot dog, $50 beer and your sunburn
Sarah_Connors: beer, bbq, talking with friends, more beer, uhhh…. really everything BUT watch the game. XD
EP: Why would they put baseball on TV then?
Saucerpass: so you can clean and do other things around the house and have it on as background noise.
EP: But what about when baseball hijacks hockey hour?
Saucerpass: touche salesman…i guess that’s why we have the outdoor life netw…..errrr….versus.
Second of all… An explanation of the Nadal/Djokovic match for the hockey fans:
Nadal is the Ovie of hockey. Although thank goodness Ovie doesn’t wear ugly striped shirts like Nadal has been wearing.
Djokovic is…. Djokovic would be the Semin of hockey. Entertaining by accident.
Murray is Toews. But he’s out. But I had to say that anyway.
Shockingly enough, the Semin of tennis beats the Ovie of tennis in the first of three sets. The Ovie does not look pleased. Actually, unlike the Ovie, Nadal pouts a bit. He puts his hands on his hips and shakes his head at the court. Anyway, the Ovie decides tha as the World No. 1 that he is, he better start playing better (you see, should he win, he could play the Less-Whiney-More-Adorable-Crosby of the tennis world). So after slugging it out, he downs the Semin of the tennis world in the second set. Third and deciding set. After some great and not so great tennis, it goes to a tie breaker. A third set tie-breaker is like OT. You have to go to 7 and win by two. So you can win 7-1, 7-4, 7-5. But if it’s 7-6 you have to keep going. After plenty of amazing shots and plays, the Ovie wins 11-9 (that’s like…. double or triple OT). He will now meet the Lovable-Version-Of-Crosby.
AND the official objective view on the Ovie vs Puffy debate is…
I have a friend who lives in Argentina. She knows nothing about hockey. She had never heard of Ovie or Puffy. I showed her a couple of pictures of both of them and gave a brief explanation of both of them in a rather objective format. And… she said she liked Ovie better. HAH! The objective Argentine says that Ovie is better. HAHA.
Don’t bother questioning the objectiveness of that. I won’t listen *g*
