Midwestropolitan West Coast Viewing Strategy


West Coast trips suck.  Although some would argue they are better than home stands.  Especially recently.

This current excursion has lead me to a reality.  I’m old.  I can’t stay up to watch these games.  Shit, I can’t even stay up to see the first pitch.

So what to do?  I’m not a cry in my beer type of guy, so I altered my approach.  For the last couple of days I have avoided any sport related media when I wake up.  I get to work and dig in to whatever tasks I have to do, fire up my MLB.Com subscription, and “watch” the game as my schedule allows.

I know what you’re thinking.  Must be nice to have a job where you can watch baseball for 3 or 4 hours.  It’s not quite that easy my friends.

Watching games in this manner consists of listening to Gary and Keith mostly. It is nice to pull up the video during a critical at bat. When I have to leave my office, I pause the game and come back.

Some may feel this means I’m not a “real” fan.  I respectfully disagree.  In my eyes, it makes me a more efficient fan.  I can fast forward through all of Jason Bay’s at bats.
