I'm definitely feeling the paradox right now of really wanting the baseball season to be over, balanced with never wanting this feeling to end. On one hand, the yearning I have to watch every moment of every game has taken a hold of me in a big way, and not always a healthy way. Tonight, I stayed at school until 7 o'clock, grading and planning, and then headed straight to Rocky Run and met a couple of friends to watch the game. Therefore, I was gone from home from 7am until midnight. That's a long, long day, and I'm sure I'll be feeling it tomorrow.
But I'm not complaining. These games are, without a doubt, the most important sporting events of my sports-conscious life. The Detroit Tigers are winning - they're now up 2-0 and seem on their way to the World Series - and I've been waiting for it for a long, long time. I've shouldered the burden of horrible management, lots of bad players, a disinterested fanbase, and a strike. My fandom only grew through the lean years, and then even moving 600 miles away didn't dampen my love for this team. And now it's all coming to fruition.
So, I look forward to the end of the season, when I can start living regular hours, and start going to the gym again. But right now, I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.
Wow, I can't believe they went up 2-0 on the road. That is amazing stuff.
