I find it humorous when watching baseball games on tv when a pitch is thrown, and the ump calls it a ball or strike (whichever is the opposite of what the home town fans want) and the crowd boos at the call. True there are some seats where one my have a good angle to tell whether the pitch was a ball or strike, but I would have to guess that in 95% (maybe more) of the seats, there is no way of telling if any single pitch is a ball or strike (unless it's way off). It just makes me laugh when thousands of people start booing about something they have no clue about. Then again, I comment all the time on things I have no clue about.
