For a fan, watching a Sox game for the past three years (save a few great months here and there) has felt like being held down while three people kick you and steal your wallet.
For an aging man that A.)loves the team more than anyone alive and B.)must watch every game, I'd say it could quickly deteriorate one's mind.
