The video game is better

I’m of two minds about the sentiment in this strip.  On one hand, the purist in me wants to respond in outrage: “How dare you!  You just don’t understand baseball nor appreciate its intricacies!”  On the other hand, playing a video game is more active while sitting and watching a ballgame is inherently more passive.  You’re more in the game when playing it on a console than you are when watching others do it.  I suppose the argument can be made that the kid could just go out and play baseball for real, but how easy is it, really, to get together enough folks for a pickup game anymore?
