They may be America's favorite pastimes, but whomever wrote this headline wasn't from America. "Favourite?"

The actual article has the American spelling... only the link is off (odd, no?).

I'm waiting for the lawsuit where someone is hit by a foul ball, failing to dodge because they're distracted by their iPod Touch. The MLB, the ball club, the ISP, and Apple all listed as defendants of course.

Also, the Giants have slightly more than 1,300 people accessing the 'net? Big deal... they regularly get 30,000+ fans to every game. That's less than 5%. *yawn*

Sort of like "Fever Pitch" with J. Fallon and D. Barrymore?!
