But, now it’s happening with Red Sox fans. Or, more specifically, the Red Sox fans who do whatever the media wants them to do to increase revenues. The Red Sox got swept this weekend. Whoop-de-do. They lost three games on the road to a team that played in the ALCS last year. Shudder to think. And our closer blew a save! Oh the humanity. Every closer blows saves. Yes, I said every. I don’t care. The Sox lost three times. They’re going to lose another 60 times this year. It happens. It doesn’t bother me. What bothers me? Sox fans. I’m watching Sox games the same way I used to watch Yankees games. Melancon blew a save. So, I know that I’ll have to avoid all newspapers and radios this morning. I also have to avoid the moronic fans who want Bard to be the closer. That’s getting hard to do. So, I can’t just watch the game. I dread the outcome. It’s not fun. Not one bit.
I mentioned last year that I realized that I really didn’t enjoy the season. I had to spend all April listening to the morons say they had already blown their chance with an Opening Day loss. Then I had to hear them talk about every loss in September like it was all over. It was draining. I want to be able to just watch and enjoy the games. Maybe it’s the biggest problem with the “pink hats” that don’t watch the games. Maybe there are just too many of them out there now. Too many fans actually think the Sox may miss the playoffs this year. Too many fans don’t know any better. They’re sucking the life out of me.
I want them to stop.
