    These jets were my son-in-law‘s jets that he works on every day out of the base in Toledo. These are the north coast defense force jets.

    I used to love baseball. The last game I went to, it took almost one and a half hours to get through two innings. It was ridiculously slow.

    The Last baseball game I went to was the White Sox vs the Cubs. Took the kids. My Youngest was a Cubs Fan. My Oldest a Sox fan. They got signatures from the players on their cards and baseballs. 2010 I think it was. Cubs won snapping an 11 game winning streak by the Sox.

    I went to a spring training game in March which was fun. But baseball has lost it's TV appeal for me. I partly blame pitch counts and carrying a dozen pitchers = more pitching changes which is boring as hell and wicked time consuming. The other thing is that they tend to naturally occur just as a little excitement finally builds. Cool pics though and what a great experience for them to be there in person.

    Agreed. But I think sports will change dramatically in the next few decades. the golden goose killers have already begun the process. Whomever first said "money will ruin sports" was right. Although i doubt they knew how very much money that would take.
    I don't feel that young people are as into the game as my generation was. Games, specially for those of us who don't live within one day driving distance have become too expensive for most to take kids to very often. There is now most certainly an "I" in team. Pitchers can't complete a game. Quarterbacks have to play by different rules than the rest of the kids. Hell kids don't even play in the sand lot anymore.
    Video games and or AI might be the next step.
