There are plenty of real things to be thankful for this holiday season. Life. Liberty. The pursuit of happiness. But what I really want to do right now is gloat about how baseball is better than every other sport.
I’m looking at you, NBA, with your drawn out lockout and pending lawsuits. Ha ha ha.
And you, NFL. Sure, you got your shit together before the season began, but you still cried like little entitled brats. If the lockout hadn’t been resolved, y’all would probably have your own branch of the Occupy Wall Street movement. (The NBA players would join, but they’re afraid for the safety of their gold chains.)
The NHL (sorta) recently had a work stoppage as well, but no one cared.
I’ve been seeing lots of whining about the new MLB CBA. It’s bad for this, it’s bad for that, ruin and damnation and havoc.
Baseball will continue to be played for the next five years. As far as unreal life things go, there is nothing I could be more thankful for.
