as the baseball season draws to a close every fall, i start to wonder what i'm going to do with myself without it. this year, baseball sort of fizzled out for me after the bay rays beat boston on october 19. i didn't really notice the lack of baseball in my life because i was so focused on all things election related. now that the election is over, i'm realizing that baseball is gone too. wtf am i going to do without baseball AND a presidential election to geek out over? i feel empty, sort of. i'm still following obama's moves pretty closely. i want to know about everything that he's doing and everyone that he's appointing but it's not with the same anxiousness that i followed the election. so with all of this spare time on my hands, i've run across a number of upsetting comments on facebook about obama. i know i already mentioned the worst of them a couple of days ago but it all still irritates me a lot. so i really need something to occupy my time when i'm bored at work and surfing the internet so that i won't go back to facebook and get angry. sure, there are a few offseason baseball stories happening right now but that's not really enough to entertain me for very long. so now what?
