What's the best thing about your favorite sport? And what's the worst thing?
We took calls from diehard football, baseball, soccer, and hockey fans about their love of the game and what drives them crazy about their sport.
@BrianLehrer Baseball best: memories of my dad; worst: slow pace due to long breaks for COMMERCIALS on TV-no prob with pace of a normal game

@BrianLehrer so many lovely racehorses treated badly (little vet care, poor training, &c) but some (superstars) treated exceptionally well

Soccer! @BrianLehrer best bit: a well-played game is can't-look-away exciting, and just long enough to be satisfying. Worst: FIFA.

@BrianLehrer Fave sport is track and field. On TV twice a year. Too many drugs. Bad announcing. No promotion by governing body.
