I dont see a problem hanging the word boredom around baseballs neck. Nor do I see it as an epithet. Boredom is fertile. Boredom is potential. Boredom is the basic elements of all of baseballs drama (Forbes 11). Using Andrew Forbes essay The Utility of Boredom, write a persuasive essay with a strong, and direct thesis statement considering the usefulness of boredom and how it can be applied in our lives in minor or even major ways. Consider how Forbes defines boredom in relation to the Toronto Blue Jays and his love of baseball. Do you have a different definition of boredom? If so, please define it referencing Forbes interpretation. What makes boredom an essential part of our lives, and how can we apply it like Forbes applies the utility of boredom in relation to baseball?
