Bad: The Nats are a terrible team. I don't plan on attending any games they will win or even come close to winning.
Good: Tickets are dirt cheap. When you already know the outcome of the game, not many people are willing to pay in excess of ten bucks for a ticket.
Bad: The Sox are in the American League while the Nats are in the National League. This means I won't be able to see the Sox play this summer as I won't be going to Chicago until Labor Day when ticket prices will be well out of my range.
Good: My neighbors have the MLB channel and have promised I can actually watch games. They think my obsession with the Sox is highly entertaining, so they will more than likely spend most of the game watching me watch the game.
Bad: I won't be able to watch the games with my dad, sister or brother.
Good: I will have plenty of excuses to call my dad, sister and brother to discuss plays, stats and standings.
The life of a baseball fanatic has its ups and downs, but mostly it's just about the love of the game.
