Feel like a bit of an intruder, seeing as I'm American, born and raised in Chicago (reluctanly based in NYC at the moment).
I've always been interested in how my favorite sport is perceived abroad. I've enjoyed documentaries about baseball in Ireland and Israel. Mainly, I enjoyed perusing the board as there are many interesting discussions going on. By contrast most boards based in the US have a signal to noise ratio approaching 0.
Don't know that I'll contribute much, but I love seeing the passion of fans who watch games in the midlde of the night. I took a trip to Scotland in 2005. When I left Chicago, the White Sox were up by 15 games and walking away with it. Since most of the places I stayed didn't have internet access, I would have to wait until the morning to go to any nearby internet cafe to see how the Sox did the previous night. It was probably best that I was in Scotland the two weeks that August when they almost blew the 15-game lead.
That others have the same sort of passion when they didn't grow up with the game astounds me. But that's just the magic of baseball, I suppose.
