I'm more of a football fan. I love the action, the athleticism, the hits, great offenses, great defenses, the crowd noise, the college traditions and rivalries, bowl games, the playoffs, big games, and the underdog winning. I can watch football all day, every day, nearly without regard to who's playing. About the only thing I don't like is the college football creampuff parade the first month of the season.
I've learned that I enjoy the analytical side of baseball about as much as I enjoy the actual games. In fact, were it not for the analytical side of the sport, I probably wouldn't care too much for the Royals or baseball. The playoffs are great, but the analytical part of putting a winning team together and learning which players are actually good is what I like most about baseball. That explains why I spend much more time reading this blog and other sites than watching baseball games.
I've never gotten into serious football analysis. For example, I can't intelligently dicuss the advantages and disadvantages of a 3-4 defense. But I love the long bomb and a game-winning drive. Maybe that makes me a dope, but I love football. Just wondering where you guys are on this important issue.
