Over at The Platoon Advantage, there is some important, potentially lifesaving information being offered. I only thank the heavens that I was deemed worthy of passing it along, much like a psychic conduit to the spirit world.
“Dear Friend and/or Loved One of a Baseball Fan,
As you may be aware, the Major League Baseball season is about to culminate in the World Series, baseball’s biggest event. While it is a joyous time, with the top two teams squaring off against each other, it also marks the end of baseball for the winter. In life, there is death, et cetera et cetera. While many fans have no problem transitioning back to civilian life once that final out is recorded, it is difficult for some to say goodbye. To make life as easy as possible for both you and the baseball fan in your life, I thought you should know some important information.
While your baseball fan is excited to spend time with you once again, please know that it’s hard to break habits that have accumulated over the last six months. You may notice them checking phantom scores on their phone while the two of you are out to dinner or you may hear them shout during a funeral service,”The stupid MLB.tv app isn’t showing any games!” This is all part of the healing process and it is with your patience that they will get through this trying time. Many have found that speaking in soothing, calming voices, much like one would use when talking to a baby bird or pet rabbit work best. While it may be trying, do your best to not get angry. This will only send the baseball fan into a shame spiral, setting their recovery back into an endless series of Mark Prior-esque rehabilitations.”
