Like everyone else here, I was disappointed by the Reds performance the last two days. I had hoped for more, but sadly our team didn't come through. But so what?
Today I watched my 8 year old daughter's team play a hard fought soccer game that they lost by a goal. No tears, no angry rants about not having the will to win or how it ruined our weekend. Just the satisfaction of having enjoyed watching a sporting event.
Some of the frustration exhibited in this thread is understandable. We're blowing off steam about our favorite team. But folks, move on. It's baseball. There is just as much a chance they could roll out 10 runs on Tuesday while Cueto shuts the Bucs out. It's been a good season, a fun season. The Reds lost their opening day starter and cleanup hitter most of the season to injury, but still here they are. One game away from the NLDS.
Letting it ruin a weekend, or even a day is really just sad. Move on and let the things that REALLY matter dictate good and bad days.
How the dear old Redlegs perform and whether they play up to what I perceive to be their capabilities, REALLY matters to me. Thats a judgment I made a long time ago and I'm fine with it. I don't think I'm hurting anyone by feeling that way. Having some stranger on the internet tell me what should really matter to me also bothers me. Don't think I'm hurting anyone by feeling that way either.
Sorry to hear about your daughter's soccer team. Maybe if the Reds had played a "hardfought game" the last two days I wouldn't feel so bad.
