I showed my thought on this to KingGhidra which i beat him at the conversation ;-D If you say that you eat while playing the game, then what do you call baseball players eating sunflower seeds while in the outfield? Are you calling baseball not a sport? :-?


DO they actually eat them, or do they spit them back out? Then that is just chewing on them, or sucking them dry. IF they dont swallow em, thats not eating.

And baseball is BARELY a sport, considering they play 162 games in like 175 games.


My feelings exactly. It doesn't even need to be sunflower seeds, a baseball player can eat a Big Mac if they play in the OF and nothing gets hit to them, and players in the dugout waiting for their turn to bat can eat just about anything they want.

I didn't say the thing, I am saying that Flockers stated that they ate "a" food. Baseball eats a food so that his stated comment says that if you eat during something its not considered a sport.

Well i go see my buddy play with his rep baseball team sometime (booring) and they just suck the flavour out of em and spit em back out. I used to think they were supposed to be cracked open, but no one swallows em there. Maybe the style varies when it comes to eating sunflower seeds :-?

Well what I do it suck the flavor off of them(barbaque or just plain salt) and then crack it in half to get the seed in the middle of it and then spit the shell out.

I remember about 10 years ago one of the old NL umps (who was rather large...His first name was Eric, but I can't remember his last name) had an Egg McMuffin on 3rd base. I don't know if the players put it there or not, but he picked the thing up and ate it! :-b
