I Enjoy Baseball Today


If you’re an interneting person, if you are “jacked in” — as they say — then there is a good chance you know that today is the day that commentors on the Web Site Reddit have decided to mob baseball stadiums across the nation, bearing signs that say, simply, I Enjoy Baseball:


I’m telling you this so that you will know it. So that when your spouse says, Hah, that’s a fine sign!, you can glance over your newspaper and mutter, Harumph! I know all about this — for behold: My mammoth knowledge!

Because: Why else would we watch baseball with a spouse in the room, if not to impress said spouse?

    Small sample size warning, but every single female in Minnesota is of exactly average attractiveness (age-adjusted, obvs)

    The standard deviation is maybe 0.1 on a ten-point scale or 0.5 ounces of liquor in the more accurate, “How drunk would you have to be” scale.

    11:15-11:30PM at the Duluth TGIFs must be intense.

        Where do the ladies go to unwind in the Duluth area? Do you guys have Boston Pizza in the USA because that’s where the ladies go to unwind in Toronto.

          Are you seriously asking the NotGraphs community to help you date-rape a drunk Duluth woman?

            Of course, I can think of no more appropriate crowd. I recommend the JJ Astor Restaurant and Lounge. Apparently, it rotates. You can’t go wrong with that. #KeepNoGraphs

          • Kris says:

            Wait a second, American, I am unfamiliar with your customs. Drunk strangers are not allowed to have sex with each other without date-rape occurring?

            In America’s hat, women tend to enjoy sex and often even invite men back to their abode for sexual relations.

            I will however investigate the question as to whether or not Duluth women have “free will” when I drop by JJ Astor Restaurant.

          Where do ladies go in Duluth? Pizza Luce or Grandma’s, I suppose.

    I think we should make a hybrid of these signs with the recent Hunter Pence troll signs and introduce the “I enjoy Hunter Pence” sign. Anybody?
