Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog centered on the same topics you discuss and would love to have you share some information. I know my audience would value your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

A championship of any sport arouses passions and enthusiasm and fanaticism, but it basically is just a competition which must be tackled with realism, calm and good sense. The excesses of enthusiasm and fanaticism just cause problems and loss of health. Each one to defend your team, but not losing life.

I totally agree with Michael. I will add, being a fan first take care of your health and whether its marathon or sprint if you are not the participant you cant change the results.

I have to admit, watching your team lose is the worst. I actually read this article from a counselor in town (Cambridge) about Sports Fan Depression.

It’s pretty interesting but it emphasizes the point you made about this just being a game.

Yes, to be fans of Red sox or st.louis cardinals doesn’t mean we should give everything for those teams. Include our health, we should keep calm and take control the best in everything. For the snack, I prefer nuts and whole-wheat crackers just as you said… 🙂

I’m a 4th generation Red Sox fan and our 4 kids are 5th generation fans. We’re going to be glued! Not predicting anything. Just want to have a solid, good time watching and rooting for my all-time favorite team in the world.
