Midwestropolitan West Coast Viewing Strategy

August 2, 2012

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.
