Poker,baseball, and golf should all be relegated to the same channel.....and it shouldn't be anything like an "X" Sports Network. Maybe TDGN? The Drinking Game Network?


Probably throw the CFL and billards in there too.....

...and while they were playing folks could shoot them in the head.

Or the knees.

I'm assuming these are all things that you suck at ?? :lol: :lol: That said poker isn't a sport it is a game. Taking a whack at golf and baseball is amusing , considering baseball requires more hand eye coordination than ANY other sport played.

Maybe you equate baseball to slow pitch where a person can get gassed and play ????

baseball is a really difficult sport to excel at...the average joe can golf etc..maybe not be good at it but can do it.. unless you are a decent ballplayer you just dont play. all others play slowpitch..

Not a shot at the degree of skill it takes to play those games.

And yes, I do suck at both of those. Though I haven't really played much golf, and when I have I've been relegated to rental clubs which don't really do much for the game of a guy who is 6'6" tall.....but that is neither here nor there.....

Hell, darts requires a fairly high degree of hand-eye.....it's hardly a sport.

I equate sports to something that requires a high level physical effort resulting in perspiration and some labored breathing.

Baseball, well the most I've ever sweated playing that is out in the hot sun while drinking cold beer.

Golf.....ditto.

Personally I find baseball beyond boring to watch, it's alright to play, but it's more for the social aspect of it than the actual competition.

Disagree on the slowpitch part. As someone who once played for the Coquitlam Reds and ran out of baseball options otherwise I played Mens fastball for 20 + years after that.... still play a bit . I would say the level of play in fastball in the Senior B level is better than any mens hardball I see these days and a fuck of a lot better than the womens fastpitch game that has demanded so much attention these days Thank you Jenny Finch.

ratman your buddy Rod Weisner who is a few years older than me played a season or two with and against me in fastball....ask him how rad the game is. 75- 83 mph from 46 feet gets there a lot quicker than 85- 95 mph from 60 feet.

For the record, none of my comments were intended to deride or belittle anyone here (like rats) who happen to like baseball. Just my own personal opinion of the game.

I'm sure there are plenty of American viewers who would turn around and have a similar view towards hockey. Not interested.

I do find it a bit ironic, however, that the Giants swept the Tigers for the World Series last night and it didn't even make the front page on TSN.ca.

Actually Blob, taking the mean of those and going 79 mph from 46 feet and 90 mph from 60 feet, the difference in time is actually only 0.05 seconds.

Just saying.
