Explain this

Dan's recent post reminded me of a Royals story. While driving home after the Royals' debacle last week, I was listening to the post game show expecting to hear many callers complaining about the team.

A caller piqued my interest when he called in and described his trip to the ballpark. He brought his friend from Norway to the game, and enjoyed the game while trying to explain what was happening to his friend. Even though it was by far the worst display of MLB baseball I've ever seen, I'm sure it was fun for his friend.

I've always wondered what it would be like to try to explain the game to someone who had never seen it. I'm sure it's much more difficult that you would think.
