    Chas v’chalilah it’s assur…completely assur. Rabbonim have spoken out against going to ball games for the last 500 years. I’m surprised you haven’t seen it in the Shailos u’teshuvos of the early acharonim. Do some research before asking such questions.

    There is no bigger issur in the Torah than being involved on sports.It’s yehoreg ve’al ya’avor. Better sit at home and speak Lashon Hara. Or post on YWN

    This huge Issur applies to Bull Fighting; Not so much so to other sports.

    Needless to say, notwithstanding:- They are all 1 big fat waste of time & resources.

    Is it worse than married men and women having endless conversations with the ppposite gender about serious topics and adding sometimes smiley faces after they post their comments? Just saying. That is ywn.

    It’s assur gamur diyoraisa to be a Yankees fan since all Yankee fans are baalei gaava.

    Being a Mets fan on the other hand is a good mussar lesson in humility so that is a midas chasidus and is actually encouraged by most achronim.

    42 you crack me up but then tell me what is the lesson of being a cubs fan? for us you may need to bring down some posukim from Iyov.

    Being a Cubs fan is a level of chasidus way beyond lifnim mishuras hadin. It is a segula to go straight to Olam Habba.

    “I cant say I had an awesome time because the Mets Lost, Its a lot better when they win.”

    Which is how often?! By order of my Psychologist I switched to being a Yankee fan…the depression was killing me!

    “42 you crack me up but then tell me what is the lesson of being a cubs fan? for us you may need to bring down some posukim from Iyov.”

    Thank You Goq for officially causing me to snort coffee out my nose. Chag Sameach!

    Just speaking to a Red Sox fan is a lesson in bitachon. They waited, and waited, and waited … and were redeemed! And every year at the time of the world series they talk about it endlessly and they will never stop even after mashiach comes.

    I took my young son to a game on Wednesday night. We only stayed for the first three innings (he got tired:-)) but we had a wonderful time.

    Sorry if this sounds a little preachy…

    fed ben fed…well said…better to teach them young how to handle the outside world so they will know how to deal with it when they are in it….assuming of course that they leave yeshiva/kollel one day and work…

    There is nothing more kosher then baseball! Every (american) rabbi loves to use baseball as examples in speeches. I have never heard one talk about any other sport.
