Entering a big league ballpark will be like going through an airport by 2015

So long, baseball. It was nice knowing you.

Thanks to its "continuing work with the Department of Homeland Security,"

Major League Baseball has told its 30 teams they must implement security screening for fans by then, either with hand-held metal detection or walk-through magnetometers.

I hope you've started to brush up your uncommon English verbs

I hope you've started to brush up your uncommon English verb conjugations, America,

like, for instance:


Some observably want you to get more familiar with it for your daily lives.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Back to the sandlot. . .

Get outside and play it yourself again! :) Who needs the huge public venues...?


Prevailing Attitude: "I Don't Care, I Have Nothing To Hide"

Rights Thinking: This move is further proof that all the violations of our 4th and 5th amendment rights had nothing to do with 9/11.

Instead of prosecuting and imprisoning members of the Bush administration for creating an atmosphere of terrorism by flying planes into the twin towers, they are still at large and running around perpetrating the lie.

The serpent is still in the garden of God masking truth with lies...

It won't be long before there will be so many bad laws on the books, virtually everything we do in American will be a crime

That is where the FEMA camps come in.

What we should do is rise up and remove the chains of tyranny while we still have time to do it...

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock...

America, a fallen nation

The great wickedness of our nation,
Is in every way, abomination,

Because we've pushed the Lord aside,
Our nation continues it's death slide,

The Bible tells us all too well,
The nation forgetting God, shall be turned to hell,

And so it is coming to pass,
His Word will ever last,

America, America,
God has removed his grace from thee,

Remove His grace, His precious grace,
From sea, to shining sea

I will not be attending

It's too bad because I enjoy going to the ballpark during the summer. But I think we have to draw the line somewhere. I think this will hurt their bottom line so we'll see how they respond.

Spot on

This will decrease attendance and MLB is coin operated. They need the paying fans. Vote with your feet is easy. Just don't attend. The protest vote is powerful in a profit-loss business. In govt, not so much. I really wish market forces could be involved in govt service, alas, they themselves eliminate competition. Witness the US Postal Service.

The price of tickets

Pushed me out of live sports.

This will odds are sound biased or grouping folks together

BUT I see those who go to sporting events especially on the national level to be the PERFECT people to further their "rabbit training". These are the same people who spend their whole life focusing on stats, drafts and dressing up as if they are part of the team.

MY TEAM almost won
If only WE would have caught it

Where is the fantasy football, fantasy baseball and fantasy basketball so I can show how OUR TEAM will do this year.

I see them falling in line. Hell, even if they made it so you needed an anal cavity search they would be proud to show how dedicated they are to their team and their support for them.

If you like football, why not go out and play it and while you are at it why not bring your son or daughter out to play with you versus sitting on the couch pretending.

Good rant

Unlike flying, going to a

Unlike flying, going to a game isnt absolutly needed by almost all people. They will see a large drop in attendence if there is a TSA like presence.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

I'll take that bet ...

What is your wager ?

Life is a sexually transmitted disease with a 100% fatality rate.
Don't Give me Liberty, I'll get up and get it myself!

Guess I have seen the last MLB game of my life.

Just not worth it anymore to put up with the fear.
