Baseball vs. Football or Committed marriage vs. affair


I heard this analogy that rings true for me. Baseball is like marriage, it takes massive commitment over time, through thick and thin. Its easy to get in a hole but it is possible to dig out.  Football is like an affair, it is fast-paced, always has a new opportunity for excitement each Sunday. Though I think there is nothing good in real affairs, the analogy rings true. I stayed up last night to watch my team, the Sox, win. It took 150+ games to get here with lots of ups and downs or possibilities of down. Though last night was good, there’s no assurance that it will end well and so the suffering continues. This, of course, is fake suffering. and Manny Ramirez, outfielder for the Sox has it right. It’s just a game and it doesn’t matter. But watch we must.

But it is still fun to cheer nonetheless. And to know my Yankee friends are in turmoil…
