Baseball!

Tyler Saladino is on the Samsung Lions so....guess I'll root for them?

thames is on the Dinos.

I DVR'd their game tomorrow AM. I am guessing though that this will be the same as trying to watch the XFL because you miss the NFL. Yeah its baseball or football, but its not nearly as good as what we are used to.

Rooting for the Dinos. Nice 4-0 win on Opening Day. Their 3-4 hitters looks pretty solid.

I really hope that MLB never goes to all that advertising on their uniforms. Bad enough we have to see that stupid Nike swoosh all over the place, but if our uniforms ever get as busy as the Korean unis, that will suck.

And why do so many people wear masks that go below their noses? lol Doesn't that defeat the purpose of the mask?

As they are discussing the "no spitting" and "no spitting seeds" rules in the KBO, the guy at bat just spit on TV. lol

Same, interesting to watch the first time, not sure if it will hold my attention in the future or not. Good background noise though. Baseball being played is better than no baseball being played.

Come for the baseball, stay for the bat flips.

Pretty interesting deep dive on the KBO bat flipping phenomena...

Let's go Dinos! Any team whose fans call Thames "God" gets my backing.

Huge walk off win for my Dinos this morning. Now 5-1 on the season. Na tied it in the bottom of the 9th with a 2-run tank and then Park solo shot in the 10th to walk it off.

Are they doing anything technology-wise to replace the crowd? Speakers with fan sounds? I'd like to see the NBA develop something tied to a phone app. Groups of individuals can connect via phone or video, then that group's sounds can be pumped into stadium along with thousands of others. I for one would watch a game on speakerphone with a group of friends and give permission for the audio to be used in-stadium.

In theory I like this idea, but I have to imagine it'd be pretty difficult to moderate. I can definitely see lots of shenanigans going on if you're allowing people to pipe their audio/video into a live event feed, lol.

I think technology would be the bigger problem? It'd be more just "noise" that would react to the events going on. With so many people being piped in, couldn't distinguish...at least in my vision haha. Now a hack that takes control of all feeds? That would be a problem.

Plus the lag would be funny. Home team dunks and the away team is crossing mid court and the crowd goes wild!
