Re: "It's Just Sports"
You have to have the bad to make the good matter. It's trite, but it's trite because it's true.
When Jay Bruce hit the walk off in 2010 ... I kind of wonder if I'll ever have another sports moment like that. Years and years of really pathetic teams that culminated in such an amazing moment that came out of nowhere. If they'd won the division in 2009 it wouldn't have been such an incredible thing.
If they lose today it doesn't change what a great season this was. Only one team gets to win every year, and I'd rather see them bow out after a division title than be a Cubs or Astros fan and have to watch my favorite team lose 100+.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
