I am curious if anyone else finds the pace of baseball so alluring to knit to? I mean the televised games, not in person. I never knit at the games (too messy - all that jumping up and down and cheering), even though I have friends who attend only the Stitch-and-Pitch games. But on TV, the commentators are so complete and descriptive that I can knit and watch at the same time. Baseball also has the lovely attraction of having 162 games per season, not counting play-offs, so there are lots of opportunities. GO ROCKIES!

And the nice thing is they always replay the key plays, so if you happen to not be watching when someone hits a big one, you'll still get to see it. Sometime I prefer to listen to radio coverage when I'm knitting since radio announcers provide much more details on what's happening as they know you can't see. (Go Red Sox!)

Yup, you just have to look up when you hear the announcers get excited; you're pretty much guaranteed to see several replays of whatever happened.

It's almost scary how many of my FOs have been knit under the influence of the Yankees :-)
