On Memorial day, as the Sox played maybe the most frusterating game I've ever seen, I had to make a phone call. The call was to my dad. Unless he calls me first, I always call my dad when the Sox have me elated or beside myself. I feel fortunate that I still have my dad and I cherish our calls. But the calls are so much more than friendly, they're necessary in our manic journey as Sox fans. I know he needs me just as much as I need him too. Who do you lean on for venting and/or celebrating? This forum is great but the spoken (cuss) word is vital...at least for me.

I work my daily stress out at the health club. Working up a good sweat seems to relax me. The way we play I am going to be spending quite a few hours at the club this summer.

I punched a hole in my wall back when Crede knocked down that grounder back in Minny.

Once my hand healed I decided to take a more civil approach: going out back and slam-dunking the basketball real hard over and over until the bloodlust is gone.

I am unfortunately alone when it comes to the Sox. No other Sox fans in my family, just me. But WSI does a fine job for calming me down after an embarrassing game. And I usually just try to look at the big picture and scheme of things. That always helps.

My therapy is usually liquid (see Jameson's bottle above) or spiritual.

I have a long drive home from work. 70 miles, so I just crank the tunes (singing optional) and just have a peaceful drive home.

When the Sox-play descends into the putrid category, I'll get pissed just as much as anybody... but then again, it's just a game.

I usually just bitch for about 10 minutes then i'm all good. My wife thinks I'm nuts cause I'll scream at the TV when something bad goes wrong. lol

Whenever we have a brutal loss like that the second the game ends my Cub fan Uncle calls to break stones (I do the same to him, so I really miss LaTroy). If the game was especially painful, I don't answer my phone until I vent on this site or to my wife (who by the way DOESN'T CARE, but I can't help myself). Then I call my Uncle back and take my beating. It sucks.

Hmm, I'm glad you were able to take a more civil approach, otherwise anger management might be in order.

I threw a Whicker chair at my TV when the Sox lost to Seattle in the playoffs. When I sobbered up, I realized I had to go buy a new TV and that was the end of me throwing stuff at the TV.

To me, most things that come in bottles are spiritual.

That sounds like me. I bet your wife and my wife would have an interesting conversation.

I usually lean on the voices in my head. It does wonders.
