There are? Besides stubborness?
I ain't a sport fan, nor a player, nor a socialologist, and I would have
thought there were no reasonable explanations for anyone's adherence to
baseball over soccer, or football over hockey, or whatever. I used to
love to play baseball as a child, football too, but it was more a
neighborhood play situation than a sport.
Besides, how the hell can anyone play a game of any coherency with more
than 100 players? What is this Ba Game you go on so much about?
