Dope or Nope

Baseball doubleheaders are apparently a thing of the past. Back in the day, double-headers were played almost every weekend! Now, they are only scheduled when there is a rain-out. This contributes to the season being ungodly long ... my guess is that we got to this place for two main reasons. First, the players union fought for this (no need to have overpaid players over-exert themselves). Second, owners, being as greedy as they are, don't want to give their fans any opportunities for a 2-for-1 deal ... pay for each game, darn-it!

I remember going to a Phillies double-header with my dad ... it was awesome! A full day of baseball, hot dogs, and soda ... what could be better? Well, I guess my daughter won't get to find out.

So, what are your thoughts on baseball double-headers? Dope or nope?

I guess I don't remember when double headers were scheduled. I think they'd be pretty dope though, as long as they didn't try cutting the beer off after the 7th inning of the first game.
