5 Things Baseball Fans Should Be Thankful For

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all of you. As you celebrate this national holiday and stuff yourselves full of food, consider these things and thank the baseball gods for them.

5- Ozzie Guillen's bilingual Twitter account.
I mean, yeah, he speaks two languages, but judging by the tweet pictured below, as well as plenty others, Ozzie may not really type any languages.


4- The history of the sport. Thanks to the lengthy past of baseball, fans are not stuck looking toward the steroid era's deceitful record breakers to find men who should never be regarded as icons of this great sport. Instead, they can simply reflect back to the very first induction class of the National Baseball Hall of Fame for players to despise.

3- One another. Yeah, fans...you make the whole experience just a little bit better. Whether you dress up like a team-supporting Humpty Dumpty, storm the playing field, dye/paint yourself to match the team's colors, or rattle your own team's most popular player with insults, you fans enhance the excellence of the sport known as baseball.

2- Down to the wire, baseball remains to be the best sport of all.

Baseball is the only game that can't be iced. There is no clock to run down, there is no taking a knee...the outs, to close out a baseball game, must be earned.

1- Beards
