I like to read about baseball but am not really interested in basketball, hockey, or football threads. So I don't read them. It doesn't bother me that they are there. Why should it? Personally, I like the off-topic section as a way for people to connect on other topics and to learn more about each other if they wish to do so. To each their own, I suppose. Frankly, I've not even been reading all of the baseball threads lately because of the ranting. But hopefully the Nats will get a win soon and there won't be so much negativity on the board.
