(SP) – A baseball game that lasted 5 hours and 17 minutes on Sunday night and into the wee hours of Monday morning is being described as “good,” “amazing” and “epic.”

Numerous posts on social media as the game continued on seemed to portray as what was transpiring as positive and enjoyable to watch, even though there was no end in sight to the baseball contest. The players themselves also seemed to be enjoying the action, jumping around, celebrating and smiling after runs were scored or big outs were recorded, even many hours into the action.

“It seems some people are liking this, and I guess I should try to, as well,” you thought, more than four hours into the game. “I’m sure if I watch more, I’ll likely understand the allure and not just think about how the extension of this game feels like a threat and that it will ruin my Monday and that every other sport wraps up its games in three hours. I must keep an open mind.”

Hours later when you woke up on the couch, the game having finally ended, you checked your social media feed to see who won the contest and found more posts about how the game was “the best ever.”

“I guess I’ll have to take their word for it,” you thought.
