I could never understand how Americans get excited about watching a sport that is based on the English game called "Rounders"

Rounders is a game played by girls here in The U.K.

Yes. We've heard it numerous times. I could never understand how people with no interest in a subject will still interject with something inane.

The game of soccer ( football ) wasn't invented to be played girls.

Rounders was.

I usually don't pay a whole lot of attention to baseball. It's that sport that kind of fills in between basketball season and football season, but since the Royals are in the postseason this year, I am paying more attention than normal.

Football is still the king of the household. I have to watch the TCU v. Baylor game this weekend to do a little scouting, and that will take precedence over the Royals game. But I will be keeping my eye on the Royals, too.

So is your team the the one the Niners beat Sunday or the one they are going to beat Monday night?

Are you suggesting that women are inherently inferior and their activities/ hobbies are to be dismissed? Women are people too you know


I've been knocked flat on my backside by some tough women on the hockey rink.

Played baseball as a youth and really enjoyed it. Was quite good at it too.

Watching it? It's like watching grass grow... but with a bunch of baseball players in the way.

Sounds like the boys are pretty wimpy. I'll be waiting for the 'I'm sure she'd crush you too comment'

Don't worry I'm confident.

Anyone can run around and kick a soccer ball lol, but it takes a special person to hit a 99 mph fastball.

This is a tough, strong, fast girl. Very similar to Halley Wickeheiser.

I'm just saying as someone who is quite competitive. I don't view those types of people as someone to not want to play with. They're challenges to overcome.

She's got her own. Like staying out of the penalty box.

I ran into that problem a lot in football. I'd end up injuring a sizable % of those who tried to tackle me... Or just happened to be in my way.

Well it makes sense. She has 2 older brothers. They obviously did their job well.


Saying girls can't play sport, or implying that it is inferior, is WAY off the mark.

Oh I agree. We used to have this zippy chick come out and play with us in middle-school and all the boys were either too slow or just too afraid to tackle her.

I did not let her gender get in the way of me putting her on her ass.
