What I Love About Baseball

1. The symmetry
2. The pace
3. Hot dogs
4. Hand signals

(Eww, the Yankees, right? Well, Joe Torre is with the LA Dodgers now so it's okay.)
5. Hats (who doesn't love accessories?!)
6. Teamwork and the likelihood of gentlemanly-ness: For example, when Cal Ripken ended his 2,632 consecutive game record, he didn't make a show of it, allowing for the opposing team (the Yankees, of all teams) to make note by standing ovation.
7. They wear belts! Gotta love a sport in which belts can be worn as part of the uniform.
8. Baseball stadiums
9. This guy:

Jermaine Dye, right-fielder for the Chicago White Sox, and MVP of the 2005 World Series

What I Do Not Love About Baseball
1. The Yankees
2. The Boston Red Sox
3. Manny Ramirez
4. Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez
5. Aaron Rowand being traded from the White Sox. (Yeah, yeah, we got Jim Thome, I know.)
6. Phillies fans
7. The Cubs (Sorry, entire family!)
8. Crazy batting stances

9. Tim McCarver (That one's for you, babe.)

Symmetry- it bothers me so much that sometimes left field and right field are different lengths! Why!?!?
