To use a musical term, for me the enjoyment that comes from watching baseball is all about tension and release.
Slow, calm moments followed by tension. And the repetition of that.
Watching baseball is about having casual conversations, then quickly shutting up the second there are 2 men on, 2 outs, and the guy at the plate is locked in a duel with the pitcher.
Then back to the conversation the second the inning is over.
How anyone can say that's boring is beyond me.
