Baseball, by far, is the best sport on the planet.
As stated in another thread, we agree on a lot, but not this. I will root for the Indians, and even go to a few games, but care for it far, far less than football and basketball.
In time, it will become apparent to you. I have found that my appreciation of baseball has increased as I've grown a little older.
There's more to sport than fast breaks, dunks, bombs, crushing tackles and end zone theatrics. Baseball is cerebral, physical, metaphorical.
And Merengue, I played soccer from the time I was 3 or so until I graduated from high school. I don't at all mean to say that "round ball" football isn't the most popular sport, just that it's not the greatest.
