Ten Months Out of Every Year

When I was in high school, I had a bit part in a local production of Damn Yankees. If you're not aware of that musical, it is about baseball. The most famous song from it is probably "Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets." 

The first song, though, has the line (sung by women playing wives) "Six months out of every year..." talking about the baseball season.
Six months? More like ten! Spring training starts in February and the World Series is held in November. 

I really don't like baseball, either, especially on television. It is boring and the games are too long, and the season is way too long. The college football season (which I love) is only 5 months long and there's only one game per week, not five or six like in baseball. There's something like 162 games played by every team in baseball. Plus, for some reason, there is a lot of spitting in baseball, and that just grosses me out.

Now, the 2020 season was pretty good. It was cut short due to Covid. I thought it was about long enough.
How do you feel about the long baseball season and the boring games? Let me know in the comments below.
