am I being stalked?
I had a dream

I cannot stand to go to a game. If its on TV, that is fine, as that gives me the opportunity to do other, more productive things while a game is being played. But even then, I do not care about the game, other than the effect the outcome may have on my wife or her family.

You see, I am a baseball widower. Yes, come time for the game, my wife forgets my existance and the game replaces me in her world. I become less then secondary, unless I am called upon to provide food.

Luckily, at family functions, I am not the only baseball widow[er]. Two of my sister-in-law-in-law's are in much the same boat. We usually get stuck entertaining the kids while everyone else is busy watching the game. Hoo-rah.

At least, with the post season taking place and my wife's team eliminated, I can be glad that there are far fewer games for me to deal with in the immediate future.

However, I must say the following:

"Lose, Yankees, Lose"

damn Yankees.

I haven't been a sports widower in years, but I remember what it was like. Fortunately, I was widowed to the New Orleans Saints, whom I understand have yet to win more games than they lose in a season. Tennis was also a biggie.

I can think of few ways to waste time that are more obnoxious than sitting around watching someone else play a sport. It's one thing to go out and play it yourself; it's something else to park your butt and watch it purely for the sake of watching it. And people wonder why I ask "who?" when they ask me if I caught their favorite team.

A troll's true colors.

Now you're threatening their sports teams?

Of course, if there was any decency in MLB, they would have just awarded the series to the Mets and the Yankees.

It is very difficult for me to control the impolitic and unpatriotic urge to Hate, hate, hate the New York Yankees.

Hate them.

I'm tuning pale. My legs are sweating. I am doing everything in my power to remember the advice of my therapist, my parole officer, and my pastor. I am chewing on my toenails.

Hate, hate the New York Yankees.

Hate them.

Please send help. It's happening again. It's all happening again.

Back in your 'old country' Baseball is only played by schoolgirls. And even then it is not taken seriously. They don't take Basketball seriously either.

Of course all sports are terrible, leading to racism and other evils.

The best thing to do is ignore them and hope they will go away.
