What do you do when your darling girlfriend (or boyfriend) doesn’t understand why you NEED to watch the baseball game? How do you convince them that this seemingly boring sport is truly the best sport of all? Try theseargumentson them:
1.When hockey players win the Stanley Cup and when football players win the Super Bowl, they get commemorative baseball hats.
2.Even those who don’t enjoy baseball can’t deny they enjoy getting to “first base” on a first date.
3.Also like dating, baseball is “a game of inches”.
4.Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
5.Watching baseball makes one better equipped to communicate because baseball metaphors permeate the English language – Examples:
·Swinging for the fences
·Stepping up to the plate
·Bringing the heat
·Swinging at a fastball in the dirt
·Hitting a homerun
·Landing in foul territory
