There should be an Inferior bowl. Get the two worst teams to play to see who loses and therefore sucks the worst! We could also do like a March Madness-- March Sanity maybe?- you could have a Sour Sixteen, Apologetic Eight, Feeble Four, etc etc. And in Baseball we should have an All-suck game the same day as the All-star game. Get the bench warmers from the Indians etc.

I think it would definitely be more entertaining to watch the bad players accidentally score one for the other team than watch people who know they're good be jerks.

If there were an Inferior Chess Tournament, you'd be sure to be the star.

I don't watch football, but you leave baseball alone!

Not everyone can be as riveted as you are by people moving tiny figurines across a small square of wood ;)

Base ball!

Not a sport! For a solid 50% of the game you sit on a bench waiting for your turn to go "bat."

For the vast majority of the rest of the time you just stand there watching some other dude bat. Every 18-20 pitches or so, the batter might hit the ball. (6-7 pitches per at bat X .333 as a generous batting average). And even THEN only about half the time is that hit going to require you to do anything. Not a real sport.

You forgot about the people trying to catch the ball (infield and outfield), and the running to the bases, and the skill of the pitcher.

What's chess then? The Anti-Sport? The epitomy of laziness and the catharsis of the nerd who could never play baseball????

Yeah. Like I'm unathletic! ha ha!

Yeah, John, but I don't see the MLB teams knocking down your door! So, in conclusion, only exclusive professional athletes make it on major league baseball teams, therefore, it must be a hard enough game to call it a sport.

Yeah, that's where you're wrong, see.
