Watching the NFL versus the MLB

Visualize putting two flat screen plasma TV’s side by side in your living space smack dab in front of your couch. You have got beer, snacks a-a lot and fresh batteries in your clicker.

One Tv has an NFL game on and the other has a Important League Baseball game and they each start at the similar time.

Apart from this getting numerous sports fans’ notion of hog heaven and even greater than clicking back and forth among games with only 1 Tv, it’s fun to watch the differences involving these two pro sports. Watching the NFL on Television is a weekly ritual baseball is on every single night of the week, but watching the two combined is practically as rewarding as joining a Cowboy cheerleader snuggle-fest.

And that’s precisely what I did lately (not the snuggle-fest, but the two TV’s factor). Here’s what occurred:

The football game started with a massive kick to the opposing team, and a line of 250-pound plus guys with murder in their eyes started charging immediately after the poor slob who caught the ball. Soon after a few seconds he was crushed by his pursuers, becoming the bottom man in a extremely scary adult male pig-pile. livescore tend to be a tiny mellower and less physical, but all pro players in any sport require to be robust. Football players take steroids, baseball players get caught.

Meanwhile, the MLB game began off a tiny less fascinating. My heart price and pulse began to slow down as I watched the catcher and pitcher play catch as the batter just stood there spitting and adjusting his crotch. I got speedily bored and turned back to the NFL game.

In a matter of a 3 minute span two guys had been injured, with a single getting his ankle relocated to his armpit. A touchdown was scored, the ball changed hands twice, and a complete lot of tackling, smashing, crunching and finger-breaking occurred.
Football is extra of an quick gratification, ADD-friendly game to watch.

I glanced back at the MLB game for a couple of minutes. Two strikeouts and four fly outs came and went and we had been already in the second inning, with small action to show for it. A baseball game is far more of a wise-old-man kind of sport, where patience and quantity-crunching are paramount. It reveres serenity.

Football reveres mayhem. Watching football gets me angry and all charged up. Watching baseball makes me sleepy. In truth, I usually like to watch the 1st two or 3 innings, fall asleep, and then wake up to catch the last handful of innings. Watching football players hit each and every other complete force and light each and every other up is exciting, and dozing is out of the query. Watching one grown man with ball in glove chase a different grown man to tag him in a pickle is kind of funny.

As 10,000 commercials played on the football Television, I had a handful of minutes to catch up on my MLB game. Lastly, in the bottom of the third, a man hit the ball and dropped it in the proper field gap for a single. All the baseball players, like the guy operating up to initial base, seemed fairly pleasant. Why not be? They were playing in a nice park, on a nice warm and sunny day and no a single had even broken a sweat however. The batter reached 1st base and started chatting with the opposing team’s very first baseman. They started smiling and getting a fantastic time with each other. My lip-reading skills are not what they employed to be but I believe I saw a single say to the other, “Hi Johnny! How’s the wife performing? It really is been a while due to the fact we saw her. We’ve got to get with each other sometime soon.”

Growing restless, I turned back to the NFL game just in time to see one particular man standing more than a writhing and groaning man on the turf. I consider I saw his lips yelling, “Hey Bruno, even though we have been having breakfast collectively this morning, your wife told me to tackle you into subsequent Tuesday, did I do a great job?”

In the really next play a running back was nailed in a bone-splitting tackle. Indeed, his bone did split, and then protruded ideal out of his bloody skin causing a wave of nausea to spread over the crowd.

Fascinated but horrified, I rapidly turned to the baseball game and witnessed a wild pitch hit the batter on the finger. The batter yelped and had to sit the rest of the game out, his pinky was smarting.

To replace the bone-sticking-out-of-his-leg guy in the NFL game, a bulky player with flowing dreadlocks sticking out of his helmet started lumbering onto the field. He had a substantial cast on his arm that looked like a major club. With the hand entirely encased, forming a major bulbous weapon, he shook it as his opponents in defiance when possibly struggling to stick 1 distinct finger up, and then reluctantly joined the huddle.

It was nearing the halftime and so several timeouts had been known as that they seemed to have run out of commercials to play. So the cameras began scanning the crowd. It was a lot colder exactly where this game was becoming held, and I could see people’s breath. I also saw a guy in shorts and no shirt who had painted his skin from head to toe in his NFL team’s colors. His head was shaved and also painted, and he was wearing a big pig’s nose on his face.

As I briefly scanned the crowd on the other Television, I saw lots of people today in button down, quick sleeve shirts, baseball caps and gloves on, waiting expectantly for that ever-elusive foul ball.

The first half started to wind down in the NFL game, and I actively awaited gratuitous shots of hot cheerleaders. I was rewarded with lots of silly pompom waving and cleavage. I then happily turned back to the MLB game but only saw 3 heavy-set women shoving sausage dogs and peanuts in their mouths.

At halftime I got a likelihood to go to the bathroom and grab yet another cold beer and much more snacks. There is by no means a big break in baseball, and each and every time I go to the bathroom even though watching baseball I usually miss the huge play, which of course happened this time as well.

My MLB game continued to plod along when I got back, inducing the exclusive ball-strike-out hypnotic state that only baseball can bring about. I was about to doze off when I was jarred out of my trance by the flashy touchdown dance I saw on my other Television. The guy who just scored was moonwalking across the uprights while flapping his arms like wings. He then proceeded to do a magnificent swan dive which turned into a double summersault with a twist and lastly landed perfectly on the field.
