I probably haven't kept score at a game in 20 years. And I haven't really considered keeping score at a game for a long time either. I think the next time I go to a game I will keep score just for old time's sake. Good chance to teach my 6 year-old the dying art.
You need more dork evidence? In college, on occasion, my roommate and I would drink beers, watch the Reds, score the game, and compare styles. Granted, this only happened maybe five times. But I'll admit, it happened.
"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
