Sports: Baseball in the Heartland
Baseball is a very appealing idea. One would assume that going to the ballpark will bring fun and entertainment. With all the "peanuts and cracker jacks", a person believes that they are part of something very American and nostalgic in nature. However, if you are at all like me, that person will soon realize, "Whoa! Baseball is a long game with swing after swing. Catch after catch." Even though it may sound like I am not an advocate of America's past time, I actually had a good time when I recently attended an Iowa Cubs baseball game in Des Moines. My pleasure came not from the pitches and base sliding, but rather the company and the snacks. The day was sunny and I have the sunburn to prove it. Will I go to another baseball game in the future? Probably. I can't resist the venders yelling or the passion that comes with professional sports even if I am burned and full by the end of it.
