Much of my non-writing time is dominated by watching/complaining about/being horrified by the San Diego Padres. These days, there really isn’t much to get excited about it if you’re a fan and it’s hard to think that there will be anything worth getting enthusiastic for in the near future.
So, because I like to share my misery with others, I wrote about what it’s like to be a fan of a franchise that continually hovers near the bottom of the professional sports pool. Eephus Magazine, which is published by the Los Angeles Review of Books, let me cry on their shoulder and you can read it right here. (And you should check out the other stuff on Eephus – some really cool writing about sports.)
