The Lyrics

Is it any wonder football has become America's national pasttime?
Sleep through those inane stupid boring
Games of Baseball
Watch players spit and scratch their crotches, too
Sleep through those inane stupid boring
Games of Baseball
Take off your shirt
And show off your great big stomach

Pay a week's salary for tickets
And weenies
And sit in your seat, look like a lump
And on the field you see
Grown men acting like children
Not cute when they argue a call with an ump

Sleep through those inane stupid boring
Games of Baseball
Watch players spit and scratch their crotches, too
Sleep through those inane stupid boring
Games of Baseball
You wish that football season would be here

Sleep through those inane stupid boring
Games of Baseball
Watch players spit and scratch their crotches, too
Sleep through those inane stupid boring
Games of Baseball
Take off your shirt
And show off your great big stomach

When you go in the park
And watch the players
More boring moments are ahead
Right from the moment
When they practice a sacrifice
You see more sleeping in the stands
Than in your bed

Sleep through those inane-stupid-boring
Games of Baseball
Watch players spit and scratch their crotches, too
Sleep through those inane-stupid-boring
Games of Baseball
You wish that football season would be here

You wish that football season would be here
You wish that football season would be here

Ten thumbs down...

I'm not sure why you got zapped twice by the one-guy; I thought it was a 4-4-4. Is one of your reasons for preferring football to baseball because baseball fans take off their shirts and look funny? Have you seen Green Bay Packer cheeseheads (and their equivalents in other cities)?

In actuality, baseball is very slow and should be considered an anachronism in the 21st century. Besides, it needs instant replay like football when an ump makes a bad call. Watching grown men act like children while arguing is not amusing at all.

I'm not a big baseball fan either, but your pacing really needs work.

I love it. More you should think about writing a parody about football. I gave it all fours.

I just looked at my comment and I really need to learn to read what I write before I submit it.

The fact that I am a lifelong baseball fact doesn't help- grrrr!!! But seriously, I have to say the pacing was really bad in this one. Even when you have the syllable count right, you need to think of the "foot" you are using - the lines don't scan properly. (In other words, you are putting the emPAHsis on the wrong sylLABle - lol!) As to baseball being an anachronism, not really - unless you consider hiking an anachronism as well. Baseball is a sport that appeals to a lot of people because it alternates the "beer and bets" time with the action. I enjoy the fact that I can take my son to a ball game, discuss the strategy between pitches and not miss anything - but that's just me. DUSTIN: Your comment was fine - just a bit of Yoda-speak - lol!!

Baseball is the national pastime. Football is a fun thing to see once a week, and a substitute religion for the American South (when they're not worshipping an Old Testament God, alcohol or their firearms). When Jackie Robinson re-integrated the game -- 56 years ago today, April 15, 1947 -- the whole country took notice. When the NFL was re-integrated the preceding fall, hardly anybody noticed or cared. We all remember the Angels won the 2002 World Series. Who won the 2002 Super Bowl? Does anybody outside New England remember? The Rams lost, but St. Louis fans quickly moved on to their beloved Cardinals. The President of the United States often throws out the first ball of the baseball season. Except for Reagan for the '85 Super Bowl, no sitting President has ever tossed a coin for a football game. The most-watched thing PBS ever aired was Ken Burns' "Civil War" miniseries. Its second, his "Baseball" miniseries. What kind of ratings did "75 Seasons: The Story of the National Football League" get when it aired just three months after "Baseball"? Before you say football gets better ratings that baseball, do the math: One Super Bowl, 130 million viewers. A World Series, which takes four to seven games to reach a conclusion, 40 million people a game, makes anywhere from 160 to 280 million viewers. Baseball frowns on gambling, while, in the words of sportswriter Dave Kindred: If gambling were eliminated, pro football would cease to exist. " I would rather listen to a Republican who loves baseball than a Democrat who ridicules it. The greatest of all sportswriters, Red Smith, said it best: "Baseball is dull only to those with dull minds."

To M. Pacholek : Couldn't help but notice your long and rambling novel; one of many, to be sure. Your comment about alcohol, an Old Testament God, and firearms relating to Southerners is very insulting, as you intended, of course. And not true. You might be able to spout off facts and figures til we're all blue in the face, but you ought to get your kicks some other way than tossing out your hateful insults.

What did you start here? The baseball term for it would be a "rhubarb." Possibly escalating into a "brouhaha." Or a "to-do" if you prefer cricket.
