America's Pastime: 20 Reasons Why Baseball Will Always Hail over Football

Baseball is in every way perfect; there are no flaws in the sport.  Everything flows together perfectly.  It is built around God's favorite shape, a diamond, and the rest is covered by the most incredible grass on the planet. 

Nothing beats sitting in your favorite ballpark, watching your favorite team on a hot, sunny day, with a hot dog smothered with all the goods in one hand and an ice cold beer in the other.  This scene is symbolic to American culture. 

It has gone through its share of changes, from the dead ball era, to the expansion era, to the long ball era.  But the sport has always been popular, and it always will be.  Football has been around for 60, 70 years tops.  Baseball? Circa 1839, 172 years and more popular than ever.

Don't get me wrong. I love football; I think it is a great sport.  But there's something about baseball, something magical, that will always make it America's sport, America's pastime.
