"We don't really need baseball. But baseball needs us... You lose black America, you lose young America."

Chris Rock makes some fantastic points about the waning coolness of baseball in this segment for HBO's Real Sports. And because he's Chris Rock, he manages to do something not often associated with baseball: he makes it entertaining.

I have to admit that I had no idea that black people were losing interest in "America's pastime" before seeing this. But now that I know, I psyched that I can now use "too white for me" as an excuse for not spending my afternoon watching dudes mostly stand still on a field for three hours.
