Anyone that knows anything about sports would have known that.  ;)
Can't blame Dan though since he doesn't have a hockey team.

Not blaming anyone. Their vote is just meaningless.  :)

TBH taking into account the rarity of a football game 7 makes it a bit better than hockey for me.
Live forever or die trying.

Fair enough, but how many game 7 Finals/WS have people attended themselves to compare to?
Anyone been to game 7 from all 3?

Some of us have been blessed with teams that don't need 7 games.

Should be 2 threads. Sports like baseball weren't meant to be watched on TV.

Especially with all those time outs every possession. And intentional fouls. Gotta love it.

If you actually want to see the whole game TV is where it is at. For the atmosphere you go to the game.

To me, and I'm certainly a biased MLB-first guy, there's something special about win-or-go-home baseball games. It's not only the history of the series being split, but it's the mysterious nature of the game that you have absolutely no idea how the game will unfold, and who will be the hero and goat. Maybe Andrew Miller will crash and burn, but Raj Davis will bail him out. In LDS Game 5s,  maybe you would be on Bautista coming through, but who could know that Daniel Murphy (pre-divine status) would almost single-handedly win the game. In the NBA, you know who the big guys are going to be; in the NHL, you have a good guess (start with the goalies), but MLB is so completely unpredictable that it makes those games completely crazy (IMO).

That's definitely part of it.

Other parts:
-Lack of a clock means that literally anything can happen. I've seen walk off grand slams. That doesn't happen in sports on a clock with 1 minute left and down by X.

-More natural tension and excitement. No phony announcer screaming to get the decibel levels higher. It seems to happen more naturally in baseball playoffs and that's even more impressive given that it's outdoors.
