I have always loved sports. Football, Basketball, and Soccer. Soccer is the sport that I actually played most of my life. But, baseball has always been different for me. I don’t know why that is but I’ve always been more emotionally invested in the Dodgers than any other sport. Some of my best memories have included the Dodgers. Also, some of the worst days I’ve ever had has been results of their seasons.
Just like a lot of die-hard fans. Whether Dodgers win or lose a game it can impact my entire day. Regular season or playoff games it doesn’t matter. I know they can’t win every game but, I watch every game like they can.
The 2017 season was a tough for all Dodger fans. It was the first time they made it back to the World Series since 1988. I usually hate brining up the past like this. After game 7 of that World Series I was so heart broken. That it was the first time I cried over my team losing. I know I wasn’t the only one who did that. My entire family are Dodgers fans but, at the time they thought I was overreacting. I might have overreacted but I so emotionally invested in them that I felt so much sadness when they lost.
Moving onto this years team. I’m skipping over the 2018 season because I don’t want to talk about that season. This years Dodgers team feels more special than 2017 did. I don’t think my anxiety has ever been worse than during this season. And we aren’t even in the playoffs yet. With all the comebacks and walk-offs they’ve had this year. You can never give up on this team no matter how much they’re down. Hopefully all this has taught fans to never leave games early or turn off your tv because you never know what will happen. The most recent walk-off was when they were down to their last strike. Russell Martin hits a weak grounder up the middle to win it. As long as there’s still outs left don’t give up on this team!
