Opening Day

"The one constant through all the years has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good, and what could be again." - James Earl Jones in Field of Dreams (1989)

It's Opening Day ... the official start of spring for baseball fans. Some would argue that football has surpassed baseball as the national past-time ... well, here is 100 reasons why baseball is so much better than football, courtesy of Thomas Boswell.

In the interest of fairness, Microsoft Encarta provides us with 10 Reasons Baseball is a Weird Sport.

And we'll wrap this up with comedian George Carlin, who offers one of the most famous stand-up baseball comedy routines as he compares "Baseball and Football."
