FanPost

When life and fandom collide.

No one cares, of course, but life has prevented me from doing anything more A's related than keeping up with the games in the last 2-3 weeks.

(Why? New baby that does not sleep at night, a 3-week long tag team of grandmothers coming to visit said baby, and more momentous things going on at work in the last 2 weeks than have happened in the last 4 years. Just what you want when you have a new baby.)

There's also this: my own fan mojo has ran out. Last 2 games attended: two losses when the A's had Rich Harden on the mound. Ridiculous.

Which leads me to this chuck and duck diary... having your baseball season wiped out by personal events. Because unless things change pretty quickly pretty soon, I might not be buying playoff tickets. Haven't yet, and can't really defend it until things feel more secure.

So take the poll, post your comments, and pour another 40 on the ground for the AN Confessional priest that ain't around.

Like the A's, I'm thinking it's better right now on the road.
