Ugh I find cricket so boring, I can only imagine I would find baseball equally unbearable. Though I guess baseball has a few things going for it that cricket doesn't.
1. It's from America, therefore exotic
2. I know nothing about it, therefore mysterious
3. It would give me a chance to say "Hey, batter batter batter sa-wing batter", therefore satisfying my love of saying things I've heard in movies
4. People watch it in movies all the time, therefore satisfying my love of doing things people do in movies
Ipso facto, no wonder it's a fun day out!
