Remedies for Suffering Due to Ballteam
« Topic Start: October 10, 2017, 11:57:21 AM »
1. Tell yourself it's all a dream

2. Take in a good movie

3. Follow another team

4. Take up a new hobby

5. Watch the Redskins (may have its own set of setbacks)

6. Drink plenty of  (alcoholic) liquids

7. Take a pill for athletic disasters

8. Call a psychiatrist

9. Take a vacation

10. Watch today - if results are better - forget all of the above!

[...]3. Follow another team[...]

If the Nats really are done tonight, the Caps and Wizards await, plus the RFK finale ultimo of DC United.

That too.

Indeed (although as usual I'll be listening, not watching).

I upset some folks by saying I was not going to watch today and I won't.  Not because  I hate the team or that I'm  boycotting.
I am just tired of the constant  under achievement.
Roark will get tagged for at least 4 and with an offense producing 2 hits per game is there any doubt about the outcome?
I now have the same lack of will as the players

Does no watching = no posting?

As much afraid as I am about watching, I couldn't ignore it or not know what was going on.  I've loved every minute of this year and can't help hoping for a much better result today.  What's so upsetting is that Strasburg gave us his best and so did Scherzer and we have nothing to show for it.

I don't really get too worked up over sports. I'm too old now at 39. In my youth sure, if I were in my twenties I'd be depressed right now. But I'm married with three kids. I have a good job and a roof over my head, I can't complain. There is no use getting so emotional about a bunch of millionaires playing a kids game for a living. Ultimately what they do doesn't matter in the grand scheme of the world.


With that said, beat the freaking Cubs.

Earlier. Starts as soon as you relinquish day-to-day responsibilities for the kids. :D
