    I don’t particularly care for knitting, RVing, or Instagram, but I don’t spend much time thinking about them, much less making spiteful caricatures (I would call them satires, but they’d have to be funny, insightful, or at least somewhat true to life in order to be that in my book) of the people who engage in them. From the looks of it, Bolling finds guys who play pick-up league softball in the park to be as loathsome and pathetic as guys who have the Confederate flag on the back of their pick-up trucks.

    If knitting news were an integral part of the 24/7 news cycle, if knitting championships pre-emted your favorite sitcom and knitting champions were payed astronomical sums and people hung on their every word as if they were the pronouncements of a godlike oracle… a lot of people might be annoyed by such a harmless pastime.

    It’s a vintage strip from 1990.

    There was a lockout that year that eliminated spring training and was looking like it might shorten or cancel the season.

    - I think he was implying that without pro ball, this is what we’d have to watch.

    androgenocide:Pick-up park softball is part of the 24 hour news cycle?

    A good analogy would be Twitter. I don’t particularly like the shallowness of thought and lack of nuance it gives to dialogue and consider some aspects of it harmful, despite its massive popularity amongst both the public and the media, but to be honest, I don’t pay much attention to it, nor do I judge people with accounts harshly, unless they attempt to drag me into it somehow.

    It’s pretty damn easy to ignore. Don’t watch TV. Who watches first-run broadcast TV anymore anyways?

    Honestly I don’t care much for professional league sports myself, but I am pretty into participating in triathlons and playing sports socially with friends and coworkers, things such as… pick-up softball… and most of those people are kind of into watching sports… the same way some people watch Hollywood movies and others play video games. When it comes down to it, nearly every single person engages in some past time which is vapid and has far too much money going into it, due to its popularity. But that’s just being human, as is obnoxious elitism that comes from looking down one’s nose at others, I suppose.
