One hour to go and bored to death. I had nothing to do today, except for some email and a meeting of 1 hour. So I spend my day watching youtube movies from Freewayjim

That's right. It's not very popular, but the teams that are here, are among the best in Europe. I would compare it with double A (AA) in the US.

That's cool. I've heard in the past that The Netherlands and Italy are the two European nations with the most baseball fans.
By the way, I'm a Red Sox fan as well!

At least they have the best teams. The European final is very often between a Dutch and an Italian team. The best visited team in the Netherlands is Neptunus, from Rotterdam. Their capacity of their stadium is 5,000. It's never full though

Great
All the other guys in my team support the Yankee$, so you might guess that I had a pretty good laugh last two seasons

Baseball? You mean that sport that has a regular (MLB) season consisting of 144 games where each match takes some three hours? I used to like watching it when I was young(er) and had just learnt the rules. But man, I needed to get a bit productive with my life...

It's 162 games, actually
Some people like very long games, others don't. In my league, we just play two hours, then finish the inning and stop the game. If nine innings have passed before the two hours are over, the game is also over (never happened to me so far). In this case, it is possible to have a tie in a baseball match.

Two hours? What's the policy on time wasting then?

A friend of mine was in the Swedish national cricket team. Now that's a sport I can't quite comprehend.

Usually when there's a ballgame on TV, which is about every evening here in the States in the spring and summer, you'll catch a few innings- go do what you have to do, and come back later. The sport is very forgiving that way. Of course in football it's pretty simple- you know to set aside two hours- with a fifteen minute break at the half.

Yeah, I'm not surprised, everywhere you go there's always Bankee$ fans- you can't avoid them. I was actually at a friend's house in Manhattan when they won the world series in 1996 against the Braves- there was a lot of noise that night and I was very unhappy because I hate that team...very, very much!
