The baseball team you follow did not make the World Series? Cheer up. Consider this.
1.) Assuming you do not plan to watch the series, you are looking at potentially saving something like 24.5 hours. Think of all the enriching things you can do with that time.
2.) Fans of some teams have NEVER seen their team make it to the World Series.
3.) Maybe this time you will actually stick to your pledge, “That's it, I'm done with sports. Why put myself through this every year?”
