Gerald read the newspaper at the back of the 2 train this morning.

“There’s not much here,” he said. “I stick mostly to the baseball news and nothing is coming out of the Bronx these days.”

“What about the teams that are still playing?” someone asked.

“I’m interested in the playoffs,” Gerald admitted. “I watch the games, but it’s different when your team is out of it.

“There’s nothing to get emotional about,” Gerald continued. “And baseball without emotion really isn’t baseball.”

I watch the games and it also feels weird to me.

Yup, the playoffs are boring, but there isn't anything else to do.

I still try and watch some of the games. There's definitely something missing.

It is very aggravating to have to sit here and watch the Sox beat the Angels yet again.

It's hard when you're surrounded by Sox fans.

Those sound like tough living conditions, Dman. You should think about moving.
