  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sugar Bowl over Bama! Or 12 Gauge trucking a nose tackle for a 1st down in the 1st CFP, or the National Championship OT win over Miami. It's too hard to pick just one.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Eddie. Archie. It's a tie.

Long live the King.

Color me confused as well - with the caveat that I haven't actually watched a baseball game that wasn't my son's high school team in the last 30 years.

So here's the deal - both sides of (offense/defense) use hand/body gestures (signs) that convey a meaning to the recipient all while simultaneously using "false" signs as to mask the intent, lest anyone on the other team figure it out.

If you're clever enough to decipher the code (that isn't hidden - even fans on TV can see them), why is it cheating to use the information to your benefit?  Maybe their efforts to disguise the "true" sign just.., sucked?

This isn't an opinion, just confusion.  Will a hardcore BB fan please explain?

*edit - evidently I type way too slow.  Thx ToddNot.  I didn't see anything in the link about the electronics though...

Counting squirrels in Central Park has to be right up there with herding cats when it comes to impossible jobs.

This one is actually simple if done correctly.  At the end of the day, just count how many are in the pile you shot.  Lather, rinse, repeat until you don't see any more squirrels...
