It's baseball, Jim, but not as we know it

Kristen has a great post on the Red Sox' loss last night to the Blue Jays.

As someone who generally just wants to watch what is going on on the field, I can relate to her feelings about the Rogers Centre experience:
And so to, I guess, keep these people’s attention, Skydome and the Blue Jays have so much distracting shit going on between innings and during the game that it’s a sensory overload and those of us who are more traditional fans are all “Could we maybe just shut the fuck up and watch some freakin’ baseball? It’s a pretty good game.” But no. [...] It’s like being at an overly caffeinated minor league hockey game.
More minor league hockey tonight: Arroyo vs. Ted Lilly.
