WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING MORE: THE MLB PLAYOFFS, OR THE NFL REGULAR SEASON?
Murph: Definitely NFL, which says something, because MLB is having one of its most exciting postseasons ever. Baseball’s slower pace in this short attention span era makes having a rooting interest necessary. That’s why Andy’s answer is almost certainly playoffs. The NFL is now America’s pastime.
Andy:I’m watching more of the NFL, but the MLB playoffs more closely. Does that make sense? I’m dissecting every inning of every St. Louis Cardinals game, but I’m not paying much attention to the American League. The sheer volume and breadth of NFL coverage (basically Thursday through Monday) makes it much easier to follow.
THE PREP FOOTBALL POSTSEASON IS HERE. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HIGH SCHOOL SPORT TO WATCH?
Murph:Basketball. In college and pros, I love watching football the most. But in high school, it’s hoops. Maybe I’ve watched “Hoosiers” too many times. Or maybe I’m getting soft and just prefer guaranteed climate control.
Andy: Basketball is my favorite. I love the community involvement in football, but I love the energy in the gyms, the buzzer beaters and the playoffs in basketball.
