The Out of Town Scoreboard / Re: Pitching change limits?
« Last post by KnorrForYourMoney on Yesterday at 07:00:07 PM »
The "Game is too long" narrative is such bullcrap. I've never heard somebody cite the length of the game as the reason they don't attend baseball games. I've heard 1) Too boring 2) Too hot 3) Too expensive as the main reasons people don't go. Too long isn't a problem unless your talking about a regular fan who didn't attend a specific game because they had other commitments. Ban other commitments would be more effective.   

The "too boring" complaint ties into the idea that "nothing is happening," which has to do with game pacing.  But the length of the game itself isn't inherently a problem.

I listened today for about 10 minutes.  It was so boring that I had to turn it off.  I just don't think they had anything interesting to talk about (I cannot listen to another minute of discussion about how to speed up the game, and the suggestions keep getting more and more ridiculous) and so I think that was why they seemed to lack focus.  Sam Huff is in his 80s. Wallace isn't even close.

I think Wallace is in his early 60s.    Not sure about Wallace's background (other than baseball) but Huff had a hell of a lot of hits.    Odd thing is my dad played football in the 30s (not pro) and took a lot of hits  ...   he never minded mixing it up either.   After this concussion thing started coming to the forefront about football, my sister and I believe that was a contributing factor in our dad's condition.    It was just odd to sit here and listen to Mike having the same speech patterns I heard from my dad and Huff on the broadcasts.    These problems don't just show up one day when you're 80.    There are signals and signs.    But I'm not a doctor.     Maybe I was having a "moment".    I certainly wasn't trying to make light of it.

It's going to be a while before there's an ex-National that can do the show. I mean one that fits into Phil's demographic.

Just wondering has a wrestler who was supposed to lose a match ever gone off script and tried to win?

Absolutely. Back in the 50-60's the champ was expected to a legit tough guy due to the chance the promotion who brought in the chanp would go into business on their own and try and steal the NWA belt.

It's a cross between Caribbean and Asian cuisines 

There's a Hawaiian BBQ restaurant literally five minutes from my house. I should try it sometime. Never had "Hawaiian food" before, but that loco moco looks pretty amazing for the morning after a long night of drinking.
