A Perfect Day Ruined


Fan since 82! Went to my first game at the stadium with my son. In championship round in fantasy baseball. Streamed in Pinero because I had a hunch. The A's lineup for the first time I've witnessed, had a lineup that from 1st to 9th, had a descending order of batting averages (from .302 to .167). The father-son bonding was strong. My son, who doesnt care for sports (Strictly Sci-Fi, comic books and such), was totally into it as I explained to him the nuances of the game. It was magical. Needless to say, after the final and as I sat in disbelief, my son, who had been an actual sports fan for the first time ever, said this, and I quote: 'Dad, the forces of evil have conspired against them'. 

 

For a split second, I wanted to kick the shit out of him.
