Steve & Keith try to get to the bottom of the pace of play issue: MLB games are longer, but why accept the football fan’s complaint about the game’s so-called “slowness”? Oh what a shame it is that baseball requires more attention and interest than the three times that a football fan needs to direct his attention away from the chips and toward the interminable replay of someone breaking their femur! Football bursts and lulls, but baseball is a sustained, cogent expression of sports competition. Abomination? What does it mean in basketball to “swallow the whistle”?
