Imagine placing two flat screen plasma TV’s side by side in your living space smack dab in front of your couch. You’ve got beer, snacks a-lots and fresh batteries in your clicker.
One Television has an NFL game on and the other has a Important League Baseball game and they each commence at the identical time.
Apart from this being a lot of sports fans’ thought of hog heaven and even far better than clicking back and forth in between games with only one particular Tv, it really is fun to watch the variations among these two pro sports. Watching the NFL on Tv is a weekly ritual baseball is on every single evening of the week, but watching the two combined is virtually as rewarding as joining a Cowboy cheerleader snuggle-fest.
And that’s specifically what I did recently (not the snuggle-fest, but the two TV’s point). Here’s what happened:
The football game began with a huge kick to the opposing team, and a line of 250-pound plus males with murder in their eyes began charging just after the poor slob who caught the ball. Soon after a couple of seconds he was crushed by his pursuers, becoming the bottom man in a very scary adult male pig-pile. MLB players have a tendency to be a tiny mellower and less physical, but all pro players in any sport want to be robust. Football players take steroids, baseball players get caught.
Meanwhile, the MLB game began off a small less fascinating. My heart rate and pulse started to slow down as I watched the catcher and pitcher play catch as the batter just stood there spitting and adjusting his crotch. I got quickly bored and turned back to the NFL game.
In a matter of a 3 minute span two men had been injured, with 1 having his ankle relocated to his armpit. yoursite.com was scored, the ball changed hands twice, and a whole lot of tackling, smashing, crunching and finger-breaking occurred.
Football is a lot more of an quick gratification, ADD-friendly game to watch.
I glanced back at the MLB game for a couple of minutes. Two strikeouts and 4 fly outs came and went and we were currently in the second inning, with small action to show for it. A baseball game is extra of a smart-old-man sort of sport, where patience and number-crunching are paramount. It reveres serenity.
Football reveres mayhem. Watching football gets me angry and all charged up. Watching baseball tends to make me sleepy. In fact, I usually like to watch the very first two or 3 innings, fall asleep, and then wake up to catch the final couple of innings. Watching football players hit each other complete force and light every other up is fascinating, and dozing is out of the question. Watching 1 grown man with ball in glove chase a different grown man to tag him in a pickle is sort of funny.
As ten,000 commercials played on the football Tv, I had a few minutes to catch up on my MLB game. Finally, in the bottom of the third, a man hit the ball and dropped it in the appropriate field gap for a single. All the baseball players, such as the guy running up to first base, seemed pretty pleasant. Why not be? They were playing in a good park, on a nice warm and sunny day and no one particular had even broken a sweat yet. The batter reached first base and began chatting with the opposing team’s initial baseman. They started smiling and having a excellent time with each other. My lip-reading skills are not what they employed to be but I feel I saw a single say to the other, “Hi Johnny! How’s the wife doing? It really is been a though considering that we saw her. We’ve got to get collectively sometime soon.”
Expanding restless, I turned back to the NFL game just in time to see one particular man standing more than a writhing and groaning man on the turf. I think I saw his lips yelling, “Hey Bruno, while we had been getting breakfast with each other this morning, your wife told me to tackle you into next Tuesday, did I do a very good job?”
In the really next play a operating back was nailed in a bone-splitting tackle. Certainly, his bone did split, and then protruded ideal out of his bloody skin causing a wave of nausea to spread more than the crowd.
Fascinated but horrified, I immediately turned to the baseball game and witnessed a wild pitch hit the batter on the finger. The batter yelped and had to sit the rest of the game out, his pinky was smarting.
To replace the bone-sticking-out-of-his-leg guy in the NFL game, a bulky player with flowing dreadlocks sticking out of his helmet started lumbering onto the field. He had a massive cast on his arm that looked like a big club. With the hand totally encased, forming a large bulbous weapon, he shook it as his opponents in defiance though possibly struggling to stick 1 certain finger up, and then reluctantly joined the huddle.
It was nearing the halftime and so a lot of timeouts had been called that they seemed to have run out of commercials to play. So the cameras started scanning the crowd. It was a lot colder where this game was becoming held, and I could see people’s breath. I also saw a guy in shorts and no shirt who had painted his skin from head to toe in his NFL team’s colors. His head was shaved and also painted, and he was wearing a massive pig’s nose on his face.
As I briefly scanned the crowd on the other Tv, I saw lots of persons in button down, brief sleeve shirts, baseball caps and gloves on, waiting expectantly for that ever-elusive foul ball.
The initially half began to wind down in the NFL game, and I actively awaited gratuitous shots of hot cheerleaders. I was rewarded with lots of silly pompom waving and cleavage. I then happily turned back to the MLB game but only saw 3 heavy-set females shoving sausage dogs and peanuts in their mouths.
At halftime I got a chance to go to the bathroom and grab a further cold beer and a lot more snacks. There is in no way a massive break in baseball, and each time I go to the bathroom whilst watching baseball I generally miss the huge play, which of course occurred this time as well.
My MLB game continued to plod along when I got back, inducing the one of a kind ball-strike-out hypnotic state that only baseball can lead to. I was about to doze off when I was jarred out of my trance by the flashy touchdown dance I saw on my other Tv. The guy who just scored was moonwalking across the uprights even though flapping his arms like wings. He then proceeded to do a magnificent swan dive which turned into a double summersault with a twist and ultimately landed perfectly on the field.
