baseball more interestingThere is a lot of talk about speeding up baseball games, but this is only one way of achieving the real end: holding the attention of viewers, especially on TV, given the fierce competition for advertising revenue. Other ways of making baseball more interesting would be to make the DH common to both leagues, eliminate deliberate walks and stop batters from fouling off balls an indefinite number of times.

CurlingWe feel that curling is more interesting when the game is speeded up, hence recent time limit changes. Keeping TV viewers glued to their TVs is essential for solid advertising revenue. There is no doubt that curling could use the extra cash. More radical changes are needed, however, given our current level of attention deficit disorder. How about eliminating blank ends and imposing a 10-shot rule? But would traditionalists accept anything so radical?
