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.
by that logic, League of Legends would acutally be the best sport on the planet.
It certainly has a larger user base too =)
Uh... a sport requires you to at least get off the sofa and break an occasional sweat, g-man.
haha you've probably have never played video games at a competitive level before.
alot of these guys will hit the gym for 1-2 hours with a training regimen that includes almost an hour of cardio and repetitive lifting. The competitive teams will typcially hire nutritionists and have personal trainers on hand.
all of the korean teams during national championships look like they ran a marathon after the 30min-1hr long games!
this was last year, but the push really started in 2016 when the prize pools started going into the millions.
there were more people watching the league of legends championship last year then folks watching the world series and the nfl super bowl combined
