If you had to give a number to what percentage of your daily mood depends on the Atlanta Braves, what would it be?
That seems like way too much. I’m curious, because I wonder sometimes if my monthly attempts to break away from the sport, which seem fickle and weird to my fellow fans, might be rooted in the fact that I take it way more seriously than they do. So tell me honestly, how much does the team affect (effect?) your mood, even when there’s not a game on?
Bub – I find that the good stuff that happens with the team affects my mood positively much more than the bad stuff affects it negatively. Although the game 2 loss to the Yankees got me more mad and out of sorts than the team has in years.
Doing the show, for me, also skews my fandom in some way. I think that over the years the show has actually given me a little more perspective, day to day, about the team. Don’t know if that makes sense.
