    Baseball is the only thing I'll use a television for.  I can hardly wait for baseball season, and I've had this condition since I was twelve years old.

    Living near Dallas, it was always terribly sad for me how poor the Texas Rangers team used to always be, but I'm looking for our fourth consecutive playoff appearance this year smile

      Love your answer! Once the weather begins to warm up I'm ready to dedicate my life to baseball, no other sport has had the same effect on me since childhood.
      I wish you and the Rangers good luck, but not too much since the Yankees will need luck too!

    You're unaware of cricket I suppose. The one who gets hold of it is addicted. It has become part of culture in many countries. Baseball is based on it also. You may give it a try. Just for change!

      I have heard a few things about cricket but never really gave it a try, I guess I've been too stubborn!  I'll have to do some research on all the rules so i can really understand the game!

    I can't wait for the regular season to start. I've watched a few exhibition games, but it's just not the same when they don't count.

    I'll probably go to a half dozen games or so at either Pittsburgh or Cleveland. I'd like to see the Pirates finally have a winning season and the Indians get back to being a contender.

      Agreed, spring training just isn't the same when it has no real meaning.  I'm excited to see what teams surprise us this year and actually put up a decent fight in the race to make the playoffs. Thanks for the input!

      I'm real interested to see what Cleveland does with some of the guys they picked up. Could be a bunch of has-beens, or maybe not. Also the Angels with the addition of Josh Hamilton to go along with those other guys.

    Going camping but other than that, all I gotta say is: Blue Jays : )

    (And remember '92 & '93.)

      Camping is also great! By the looks of the Blue Jays team so far this spring training they might be some pretty strong competition in the AL East!

    Is there anything better? - well something comes to mind but I guess this is not the proper venue for it!  :-)  Used to love to watch the 70's Dodgers with Yeager, Lopes and Steve Garvey.

      LOL that's great!! The Dodgers had a nice team back then, I'm excited to see what they come out with this season!

    Yes . Playing cricket on a good wicket with lush green outfield(like at Wankhede or Mohali) , Middling the ball with a nice heavy bat , running in and bowling a good bouncer , taking a skier .

    It really depends on what you love to do the most .

      All these cricket answers! Looks like I'm going to have to do some research
