As you may imagine, an Englishman watching a baseball game in America without understanding it much – and which, to underscore my ignorance, I referred to as a ‘match’ – is a potential setup for some amusement, perhaps akin to the stuff we tend to dish out to visiting Americans about cricket.
Add a German to the mix and the potential for amusement gets quite large.
And I captured it all on video.
Along with Wolfgang’s and Marshall’s fellow Edelman colleagues Rick Murray, Monty Lutz and Erin Caldwell – also stars of the video – I was in Chicago to participate in Edelman’s New Media Academic Summit 2008.
Anyway, the baseball game was great fun especially seeing it at one of America’s hallowed venues.
As for the rules of the
match game, there’s now a good video reference complete with the sounds of Wrigley Field, so there’s no risk of not getting it in future.
Not sure about Wolfgang, though. :)
