    The problem is at the time this strip was published, the only really big professional sport active in the USA is MLB—and MLB has a lull in mid-July with the All-Star Break.

    But not to worry—NFL football camps are starting up, and by the end of August college football starts and the NFL season starts in early September.

    What has REALLY hurt baseball is that starting this year, they’ve really toughened the rules on banned PED’s. As as result, offensive output is way, way down and it’s turned into the most pitcher-dominated season since 1968.

    Actually, due to “no fly zone” restrictions in the aftermath of 9/11, such drones are NOT legal at major sporting events. That’s why you need very special permission to fly blimps and helicopters around major sporting event sites worldwide nowadays.

    My problem with baseball is that players do too many time-wasting activities which has stretched a nine-inning game to sometimes way past three hours! In the old days, a nine-inning baseball game finishes somewhere between 2 hours 15 minutes to 2 hours 30 minutes; maybe strict enforcement of time limits between pitches, a bigger strike zone call, and forcing batters to stay in the batter’s box would cut the time of the game to make it a lot more palatable to modern viewers.

    I’d put in Russell, Chamberlain and Jordan for sure. The fourth has too many good candidates to choose from.

    They eliminated the home plate collisions because frankly, when the best catchers are earning US$80 to US$100 million guaranteed contracts, team management wants to make sure they can play, not end up out for the season. They should have banned this practice ever since Pete Rose seriously injured Ray Fosse at the 1970 All-Star Game.

    Except that Arrowhead Stadium broke the noise level record just recently….

    How about allowing each student athlete to be able to hold an outside job up to US$15,000 per year beyond their scholarship? That right there ends the VAST majority of the NCAA violation problems.

    I think a big problem is that the NCAA thinks the athletes should live what the British describe as “genteel poverty.” At least allow student athletes to be able to get gainful employment up to US$15,000/year in addition to their scholarships—this would eliminate the vast majority of the infractions out there.

    I think the issue here is that today’s radio baseball announcers grew up in the age of television, and as such announces a baseball game in a totally different manner than the old-time announcers. If you listen to John Sterling and Susyn Waldman on the Yankees’ radio broadcasts, it has a very different “feel” than what Vin Scully does.
