There is a Finnish flavor of baseball (pesäpallo, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pes%C3%A4pallo) which is the nr 2 summer sport in Finland and I also enjoy playing and watching it myself occasionally. With this background, when 7 years ago I for the first time visited the US, I was excited to see some of your baseball too. Luckily for me, there was a huge game on TV that night, NY vs Boston or something like that.
Apparently this was supposedly a great game too. The commentators were wild about the fact that the pitcher had thrown so many balls without a single batter hitting once and that he was about to break his personal best. Halfway through the game I fell asleep. Next day I read in the papers the game had ended 1-0. (Ok, so jet lag may have played a part too.) I must say, it did not quite live up to my expectations :-)
Next day my Finnish friend confirmed: Yup, this was a typical game and he has no idea why Americans are so excited about it.
