When the Yankees were playing terribly recently, I decided I had to step away for a bit.
It’s not like I was going to choose a new team — even though I live in Massachusetts, I won’t root for the Red Sox if you put a gun to my head — or not check to see if they won each night, but I just wasn’t going to watch for a spell.
I figured it was the best thing to do, as watching their games was literally making me angry, and that was something I didn’t need in my life at that moment.
And they’ve won five out of six games since.
So now what do I do? Once the original anger subsided, I figured I’d always go back at some point, but if they start losing once I do, it’ll be my fault.
Because you must always respect a streak.
