Sorry about the lack of updates, but from the entire process of moving and having to adjust my schedule accordingly which leaves me barely enough time to be a Dodgerist things are hectic.
Speaking of the Dodgers, I have a problem that’s been creeping up for the last several years. It’s well known that I’m a complete sports junkie, but it’s become very pervasive into my everyday life. Most of my friends are at best casually into sports. As for me, I can tell them historical stats, the minutiae of strategy and player transactions both rumored and real. Hell I find myself using sports teams as metaphors. I.E. this movie is as bad as Dallas’ first-round playoff meltdown against Golden State. He looks as stupid as the entire Cubs team in 1965 against Sandy Koufax. Stuff like that.
So I’ve come to a resolution. Since I’m already entrenched in being a Dodgerist for the rest of the baseball season, once it’s over in November I will not follow sports closely. I might watch an occasional SportsCenter here and there. I might even watch an occasional football game. But I will not get myself mired in the ins and outs of any sports. I will allow myself to be a casual fan.
