Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for April 28, 1990
Calvin: I think baseball is the most boring game in the world. I've been standing out here in deep left field all this time, and not a single ball has come out here! Actually, I suppose that's just as well. I don't know what base to throw to anyway. In fact, I'm not even sure that I can throw that far. Hey, what's everyone doing? Are people switching teams, or what? The guys at bat are now out here! Well. I'm sure someone would tell me if I was supposed to be doing anything different.
Yep—nothing like a clueless kid and an oblivious coach to lead to confusion and a recognition that sports are supposed to be boring and pointless.
