I was in that boat. Until the ninth inning. They sucked me back in, so that made it that much worse when the inevitable happened.
This is why baseball is awesome. I felt physically ill until about 8 o'clock last night after that. I'm a huge Colts fan, as some of you may already know, and they've suffered their share of disappointing playoff losses. None of those hit me as hard as this. No other sport, not football, not basketball, can make me feel emotions the way baseball can. I would gladly trade that Colts Super Bowl ring for a Reds World Series.
Baseball is the best thing ever. But I hate it right now.
