Last week we spent five days at the coast. In my post about this trip with some of the goodies that I brought back. I talked about how up here in the Northwest we love to watch waves crash against the rocks. This got me thinking about how as a society we just love to see things crash against each other.
The facts are there whether we want to admit it or not. We just love to watch things collide. In some part of the country they have demolition derby's. Nothing says crash like watching two cars go after each other and metal flying everywhere.
The most watched sport currently is the most violent, football. A sport where the players crash in to each other play after play.
To some like myself the most exciting play in baseball is the play at the plate. Heck it's so popular that even a blogger named his blog after that one play. How many other plays in baseball get that much love? So I'm going to give that play a little more love, and show some of the cards that share the play at the plate.
Sometimes the thought of a collision about to happen will get us excited. An example is this 1994 Stadium Club card.
This card here is one that can drive a person crazy.
While looking for cards to write up this post my blood got flowing when I came across this card. How can't you as a fellow crash lover not enjoy this card?
Some cards leave the imagination though with what just happened.
While I found many other examples these are what I consider the best of the best in what I could find going through my cards. The cards that just left you knowing that it just had to hurt when the play was over.
