There must be 1000 things to do
besides torturing myself in front of the TV
watching my team sink even lower in the standings.
Do the laundry
Am I such a glutton for punishment that
I serve jail time measured in long innings?
Write a novel
Will someone please rescue me from this
addiction which makes me stare at the tube
until the last batter finally strikes out.
Go for a 5K run
Why does my team purposely play
such bad ball which shortens my lifespan?
Wash the dishes, mop the floor
Can I tear myself from the TV screen and
become a volunteer for some worthwhile charity?
Read a good book
Face it – the one thing I have to do, loyalty personified,
is to be there for my very sad, sad team.
Please help me!
