Another day, another superb trending hashtag on Twitter. Last night’s hashtag of choice was #MakeBaseballExciting, which was surely the result of baseball becoming relevant again seeing as how we have officially made our way into October.

ESPN may have recorded its best baseball television audience in a decade two days ago, but I failed statistics, giving me good reason to ignore the absurdity of it all and enjoying a night of Twitter ridiculousness. I may have a midterm in two hours, but Twitter is a trap, and I am thoroughly ensnared at the moment.

Drugs? Nudity? Explosives? Do Twitter users desire the deaths of America’s professional athletes? As always, Twitter left me with nothing but questions. Questions of a nature only the internet can provide. Questions that have you wondering if the majority of society has undiagnosed mental illnesses. If anything in that Petri dish of stupidity and questionable ethics is certain, the game could use some historical changes if the internet is any measure of opinion.

Rob Manfred is likely unaware of my existence, but if I were to throw Grandex’s deceivingly pathetic crew of lobbyists behind any suggestion listed above, I’d stick my money on the revamped “kiss cam.”

Very few activities are more American than a solid handy on the video board of a professional stadium. The mental image of two of St. Louis’ finest residents performing some hand-to-gland combat on the Jumbotron as I scarf down a half-frozen ballpark pretzel has me yearning for an extra inch of desk height. Besides, anyone who is opposed to some video board PDA is welcome to move to Philadelphia. They usually struggle to meet kiss cam qualifications.
