The High

I can't recall what Mike Tysons time was in the 40, but he was at the time the fastest man in the state. He was also big and strong sort of body type like Bo Jackson.

My brother once witnessed Mike Tyson take a running jump and leap over a 1973 Chevy Nova after a pickup game of basketball at the Kanawha City Elementary school playground.

BTW: The jump wasn't from the side of the car it was from the front to the back. He landed two feet past the trunk. True story!

So, with your vast knowledge, why is it a pansy sport? Is it because it's too intellectual for you to comprehend? Or because they aren't laying all over each other like football players? I guess it is boring compared to running two yards, falling down, and getting up and doing it again. I can't contain the excitement I get from the thought of that.

Baseball is the one of the simplest sports there is. You don't have to be that physically fit to play and there's no contact.

No contact? Obviously, you've never once watched it. I believe you see a lot more whales playing football than baseball.

Let's see

The left fielder can stand for two maybe three innings and never move so can the right fielder and so on. You only bat every so often and...

Baseball has a whole lot of standing around doing nothing. Yea on occasions you have to do a little running if you get a hit, but say you hit it to the 3rd baseman and he throws to the 1st baseman. What are the outfielders doing and the catcher and so forth. baseball is a lazy mans game and it is only still around because of the purists. It is boring.

Hell even in the American league the pitcher doesn't even get to bat and his designated hitter doesn't even take the field...LOL

What's that all about?

I guess if you have no idea what's happening, it could be boring. Kind of how I view football. I loathe the game of football. It appeals to the lowest common denominator of people because it requires nothing more than brute size to play. You can weigh 400lbs and be successful. I hate it. It has no excitement to me. I find it boring to watch a guy run six feet, fall down, get up, and repeat the process. Just discussing it makes me want to take a nap. You actually have to watch a baseball game to understand it. I guess if I wanted to be like most of the other ignorant, uneducated people in this state, I could be a football fan too.

In football no matter what position you play as soon as the ball is snapped you have to do something. Run, block, catch, throw, tackle, punt, kick, or just knock the crap out of somebody, but no matter what you have to move.

In baseball well as I said you can just stand around for over half the game looking at the fans and.....

now I am not saying baseball isn't fun, because I played little league, senior league and high school, and even softball for a few years, but as I said I promise you the most overweight out of shape football player is still a better athlet than a baseball player.

I don't where you're getting your information from. I know there are a couple bigger guys, but you make it sound like every player is overweight and out of shape. Have you ever watched a game? Sounds to me as if you're making your assumption from afar.

I would have had to have an interest in it to not make the team. I loathe the game more than anything, so no, I didn't make the team. I'm not a fan of things that are shoved in your face and are expected to like, i.e. football.

Actually, no. I have little interest in politics. I could care less if gay people want to get married. I just hate football. One thing I love about it though, is laughing at crybaby wvu fans when that sorry team loses.

Looks like he admitted it alright. Have you told your parents yet or are you one of those flaming ones where it is real obvious? Do you wear Marshall gear all the time or do you mix it up?

More importantly how is your health? You don't have a nagging cough or some unexplained sores going on do you. You been feeling tired latley?

How about your appetite and sudden weight loss?
