Re: 2011 Major League Baseball Thread

I grew up in New York, although I am English and have now been living in London since 1986. But growing up in New York, the main team sport that really captured my imagination was baseball. I was a big Mets fan back in the early/mid 80s until moving back to London but I liked baseball in general. I even posponed my move back here so I could watch the 86 World Series between the Mets and the Red Sox. That was a lot of fun.

Having been back in London so long I have completely lost touch with baseball but I still miss it. Here the biggest sport is football which I find seriously boring and it has never really captured my imagination at all. Cricket is better but even that is so dull compared to baseball.

Anyway, I just wanted to get that off my chest and say I am envious of all you folks in North America that have such cool team sport to keep you entertained. And yes even the NFL is way better than anything we have in this country. In a nutshell...US sports >>>>> UK sports.

I'm a Mets fan, but like most Mets fans I am always pleased to see the Red Sox beat the Yankees.

I would so miss baseball as well, though I think that one can subscribe to the MLB network over the internet
