Baseball Game Livetweet Thread:

I shall be at recording my impressions here. I still do not know the rules. I shall not be learning them before the game.

So far the baseball game seems to consist of wall to wall ads that say Baseball Is Back but no actual baseball.
my god now theyre showing ads of all the mariners teams that won nothing before but still no actual team is there actually a team or is this some Fyre Festival franchise??
I know I'm supposed to root for the Mariners but the other guys have better uniforms so now I'm torn
These guys don't seem very good at hitting the ball
Tbf the Mariners don't seem very good at throwing the ball either so fair play all around
The score is still 0-0 but all the announcers seem to agree the Mariners are losing
I like how the umpires in this sport give these guys out, by pointing at the dugout with full enthusiasm like FOH, you
They say that there have been no hits and yet they just hit 3 throws in a row what the hell is going on in this game
Wow that guy just dropped the catch while catching with a glove they should punish him by confiscating his glove
he hit the ball into the stands but apparently nobody gives a fuck why is he being cheated like this
This guy is incredible at hitting the ball vertically upwards
YORKER WHAT A BALL GOT HIM RIGHT ON THE TOES NOW THATS A GREAT BALL
they said it was a shite ball and sent the batter ahead what the fuck??
This is so unfair
so they ran around all this time and the score is still 0-0 it's like watching a soccer game
Ok so as far as I can tell if it would be a great ball in cricket it totally sucks in baseball and gets you yelled at
OH SO THIS GUYS HIT INTO THE CROWD MATTERS HUH
Crushed it though tbf that was an awesome shot no matter what sport.
This next dude is PUMPED, relax bro, we can see your face it wasn't you who smashed that shot, chill out
hit it straight to the fielder WHY ARE YOU RUNNING STAY THERE YOU WILL NEVER MAKE IT YOU FOOL
I KNEW IT
wait so apparently he had to run because thats the rule how is this rule legal who approved this
CAUGHT ON THE BOUNDARY NOOOO
how the fuck is the score only 1-0
another great yorker so obviously they give it to the batsman
it's weird how they don't let the whole team bat in every innings
also they keep calling it a diamond and I don't see it
I mean, it's literally a quadrilateral.
Also Chicago White Sox is CHW but Seattle Mariners are SEA are they fucking with us here
Turns out half of the ads during baseball games are of people saying how much they love going to baseball games
ANOTHER HIT INTO CROWD
nobody cares again it seems. Wow it sucks to be the Mariners clearly
He keeps throwing it to the guy who finished batting and went on to the next base like get over it my dude theres another batsman there focus now
WILD THROW AND DUDE RAN FOR MILES SEE I TOLD YOU TO FOCUS THIS IS NOT COOL DUDE
These throws have more names than the average high school classroom in Seattle
wait so you can't swing at a wide ball or it becomes not wide how does this make sense
how are these guys SO good at yorkers if theyre not supposed to bowl yorkers
damn the mariners are bad at fielding
amazing yorker again, so batting team gets a run, great call there
Mariners are also bad at throwing it seems
They also have no runs so throw batting in there as well. At this point I think it is safe to say they are not good at baseball.
Score is 4-0 and I'm not sure how bad this is but judging by the Mariners batting so far today it looks pretty bad
WTF wait, there's no halftime????
whole fielding team is consulting because MAriners got a guy to the first base cushion way to show confidence guys
Mariners now have a guy on every base cushion ok maybe they were right to lack confidence
RUN OUT AGAIN WHY DID HE RUN THIS RULE IS MADNESS
wow the mariners got all out that innings with no runs even though they had a guy on every cushion that compulsory running fucked them over they should complain after the game
nobody cares about all the best shots in this sport I don't get it
damn these annoucers are reallly impressed that a guy threw a ball to another guy 10 feet away ok then
The Mariners are also really good at not hitting the ball
ok so why are there so many ads of Mariners fans saying how much they love going to games if this is how the mAriners play is this some marketing strategy
I think I need a drink if I'm going to keep doing this
literally everyone on the mariners is batting like they also needed a drink to keep doing this
Sox now have a guy on every cushion and a 6-0 lead Mariners about go through some things
Ok aerial shot time and that is soooo not a diamond
THIS TIME THE OTHER TEAM''S CROWD SHOT IS IGNOReD HOW YOU LIKE IT WHEN IT HAPPENS TO YOU HUH
holy shit Sox did a Mariners and somehow got nothing from the innings
He literally hit that ball into the exact place they claim is foul according to the rules but its a legit shot this time because apparently the rules are drunk too
anyway Mariners now have a guy on 2nd base cushion and I have never seen a sports team work this much to score 0 runs
Ump still killing it with the FOH out signal like "You have failed me for the last time"
Apparently the fans at the ground are now singing "Take me out to the ballgame" which makes no sense since they are literally already at the ballgame. Unless this is Mariners fans protesting and asking to be taken to a different game.
The Mariners have successfully once again executed their strategy of not scoring any runs
Why are the white sox even batting again, just declare bro
UP IN THE AIR AND.... dropped it??? Dropped?? lmao the Mariners literally have a guy whose job title is Catcher who can't catch what a team
This game is a lot of fun for a 22 man game that somehow has a scoreline that looks like the opening set of an early round Serena WIlliams match at the US Open
I'm going to guess based on what we have seen so far tonight that Mariners fans do not expect 7 runs in the last innings to win the game
first dude is already out so it appears they could be correct not to expect it
Last guy isn't even bothering to hit the ball , he's just standing there. A Gandhian approach. I like it. Protest.
Gandhian tactician lost the plot and hit one to a fielder and mercifully ended it . 6-0.
Well, that was a trip. Nothing about this game makes sense but it was fun. I think I'll watch another one.
Wow the Mariners are playing again 24 hrs later talk about not even giving your victims time to grieve

Major scenes happening at the Neighbour Uncle's across from my parents, apparently he decided it would be genius frugality to use the same lightbulb on outside lamp in the evening & take it for reading lamp at night to save money but now he is unable to remove bulb & he is ANGRY
Apparently he has also burnt his hand because he forgot to switch off lamb before taking bulb and he is very hurt that nobody in family seems to care about it
Sorry, I meant to say lamp. As far as I know there are no lambs on his property, switched on or otherwise.

The real takeaway from watching Avengers is that Thanos stopped reading economics in like 1798
Trying to imagine a whole subgenre of films dedicated to an superpowerful intergalactic being convinced that the world is flat and must be fixed because thats basically Thanos and Malthusian theory
Oh god, I'm going to write this, aren't I?

So the Matt Gaetz thing is called Mattgaet, yes?
Only a truly considerate man would come with the scandal suffix already attached
No wonder he said he's gaeting out of Congress

Finally got around to reading that DMZ editor's essay on who gets to claim identities and under what circumstances and ngl, I didn't expect it to bother me nearly as much as it did. I'm kinda angry rn.
It also does something I dislike immensely irrespective of context, which is create a false paradigm of mass exploitation of a system by alleged bad actors and then go to town as some white knight battling it. It's posturing, it's dishonest and it's complete bollocks.
I know many writers who could sub to places under specific identities but don't, because theyre super self conscious about the exact things this essay claims is some epidemic. People are self rejecting ALL THE TIME, so pls, miss me with weaponising their insecurities vs them

This story is sending out some serious vibes
Some days you block the Suez, other days the Suez cockblocks you
All we can do at this point is pray for a happy ending

PSA: I need everyone to know that the shipping company that once lost thousands of rubber ducks overboard that inundated the waterways is in fact the same one that owns the ship that has stoppered the Suez Canal and thats how you make your CV memorable to recruiters
"Do you have much experience in global shipping?"

"Do you have Google?"
"Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?"

"Still in the Suez."
