The Key to Keeping a Man Happy is Taking an Interest in His Interests

Joe: [Stuff about the baseball playoffs, blah, blah, blah, baseball, blah, blah, Yankees].

Me: So do you think A-Rod househunting with Kate Hudson will effect his game?

Joe: A-Rod is dating Kate Hudson?

Me: Uh, yeah! Where have you been? They're househunting and everything. You don't know anything about baseball!

Joe: Uh huh. And you do? What's the infield fly rule?

Me: Um. I know this. It's when the guy hits the ball and it goes really high. Over the infield. And the players can't see it because the sun is in their eyes so they can't catch it so they just let the guy go to first base.

Joe: Uh, no. It's when a fair fly ball is hit over the infield and the runner is automatically out if there are runners on first and second or the bases are loaded.

Me: That's what I said.

Joe: Not even close.

Me: I don't see how that has anything to do with Kate Hudson.

Joe: [Silence]. I'm going to bed.

did you hear the rumor that she's pregnant? apparently her ex-husband's current girlfriend is knocked up, so she may be playing catch up

you left out the part thnat there has to be less than two outs for the infield fly to be in effect and the infield fly is called at the umpire's discretion.
