Inspired by the game thread. (I was going to make this a poll, but I didn't want to limit the choices. I'd rather see how creative we Sox fans can get. If we have to--Whoa, Nellie! make that "if our team has to"--suck, let's at least try to have as much fun as we can with it.)

My picks:
Being bitten by fire ants
Pooper-scooping
Cleaning the oven
Watching the Arizona Cardinals
Mammogram

Oddly enough, I was pondering something similiar the other day. Te last time the Sox were this flat out bad, the internet didn't exist in it's current form. Not even close. So now, there are plenty of diversions to occupy my time, other than watch a bad team. I can sit outside with the laptop, follow the game, and still relax by planning vacations I'll never take. I can chase down every curiosity, or idle thought too.

Spending a doubleheader next to this guy:

Waiting in line at the drivers' license place
Calling tech support/customer service phone numbers and having to enter nuclear launch codes every few minutes

watching replays of NFL pre-season games is more fun than watching these guys right now...... this is as bad as it gets.

Nice, VC! Way to go from negative to positive.

Although I think negative is also fun. :-)

And let me add (positive):

Petting my beagles
A nice cold beer
Playing my banjo
Living in the "land of the free"
Looking forward to a visit home (despite the mites!)
Not murdering my Cub fan spouse (at least not yet!)

Having an abscessed tooth opened and drained without having a supply of Tylenol III afterwards.
The root canal that follows.
Biting on a piece of aluminum foil.
Having a nurse who doesn't know what she is doing shoving a tube up your nose.
Gagging on said tube as it goes down your throat.
Stuffing gauze soaked in saline solution into the 3 x 2 x 1 inch hole in your belly after your incision fills with fluid and is drained.

I've had all of these things happen to me, and all of them were a lot more pleasant than having to watch this team.

I enjoyed the morning after my back surgery and knee surgery more than this, and those mornings sucked. We really suck. It hit me hard today more then anything. Was in southern IL playing golf and I have sox head covers and towels on my bag. Some Douche in cubs hat were like the Sox suck, I was like yah, we are terrible this year, better 1 then 100 though right. But its true, we are one of the worst teams in baseball right now. Kenny and Ozzie better start next year on the hot seat, because neither is doing their job. I care we won a World Series in 2005, but this year 2007, the next meaningful season is 2008. How many of us keep a job because we had a great great year 3 years ago and have gotten worse ever since?

We're only 16.5 out with 32 to play, with 25 against AL Central teams. Don't stop believing...

Last year at this time, I had to go to the hospital twice in three days due to extremely severe dehydration, which was caused by food poisoning. It was so bad that I couldn't even get out of my bed to get myself a glass of water without falling over and temporarily losing consciousness...and my kitchen's right next to my bedroom! I guess that didn't matter, because I was throwing up everything I tried to make go down for the entire week, including small sips of water. I had to crawl on my hands and knees to get to the phone to call my mom for help.

I sometimes feel THAT would be better than what we've been seeing since around the time Crede went down for the season.

Now that's painful. So is passing a kidney stone, I'm told.

I brought that to watch while on the plane to Seattle, and did it ever make me tear up there thinking of what's become of this season. Hopefully they can use September as a pre-Spring Training and cut the fat this offseason.

Monday's game seems like it would have been fun to watch.

Soccer.

Watching soccer is more fun than watching most non-baseball sports. There is constant action, no time outs, no huddles, no stalling when the ball isn't in play, players don't try to hide the ball. There isn't much scoring, but great baseball doesn't need to have a lot of scoring either.

Living without cable and internet for a week and a half into the school year.
Talking football. This says a lot because I hate ANY football chatter (Pro or College) before mid August...and with the way this awful baseball season's been going I made a rare exception in mid July!
Watching my sure-fire future wife (Jackie Meretsky) deliver weather reports in areas I live nowhere near...mainly on mute. :cool:

Headed to watch the West Michigan Whitecaps tonight - magic number is 2. This will be the first year since I-can't-remember-when that I will have attended no major league games.
