Ask a 26 year old American male about sports.

30 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen to many threads dedicated to discussing male interests ( most of visa journey is composed of women I believe. So I have decided to create a thread where women or men not familar with the great american sports can ask questions or start discussions based on these sports. If you have ever been confused as to why men like these things, or puzzled about American sports this thread is for you. If you don't care that is ok too, just don't troll the thread :)

So ask away. I consider myself reasonably well versed on this subject matter so hopefully I can provide some insight.

As we were watching the baseball the other night (GO TIGERS!) my dear husband said matter-of-factly "don't the fielders get an advantage because they wear mitts"

I told him that the Yankees were hateworthy because they were a combination of Man U and Chelsea -- that he could get his head around.

Not true. Soccer is actually reasonably popular in the United States, it is just overshadowed by more popular sports with more money and more marketing.

I played soccer as a child and thought it was one of the best things I ever did, as hitting a baseball ( my true passion) was next to impossible for me.

I told him that the Yankees were hateworthy because they were a combination of Man U and Chelsea -- that he could get his head around.

Taking those two games in Oakland was unexpected, but then again so was the trouncing of the Yanks. I am a firm believer in playing terrible ball down the stretch to get it out of your system so once the playoffs come around you can get it going. ( see White Sox last year and Tigers this year)

I definitely think the Tigers have a good chance to win the World Series due to the fact that they have outstanding power pitching, an experienced manager and professional veteran hitters.

I think a Mets Tigers matchup is most appealing at this point seeing as for most of the season they were the two best teams in their respective leagues.

Why does Major League Baseball insist on calling their premier championship the World Series when the entire competition takes place inside the USA and consists almost entirely of US teams ? Does the involvement of The Blue Jays from Toronto make it international enough that they can call it the World Series ?
