"What Happened to Baseball?"

Right up the old boredom alley.

"What Happens to a Sport When Nothing Happens?"

Two tremendous articles on boredom in Sports Illustrated.

Summarizing so that you don't have to read the whole two boring articles, what happened to baseball was that baseball was the national pasttime, right? So people went there and passed away from boredom. You had stadia with 30,000-40,000 corpses. What are you going to do? So they sealed the stadia like Chernobyl, put a concrete sarcapogus over them. Gets expensive! So they just said "Arright, baseball's canceled."

You're welcome.
