I remember the story of how, after the '63 Series, Yogi Berra said to Maury Wills, "I can see how he won 25 games; what I can't understand is how he lost five." And Wills responded, "he didn't lose those games, we lost them for him."

My wife and I watch a lot of sports together. We both love golf and college football, and enjoy pro football to a lesser extent. She'll watch March Madness with me, and occasionally a big NBA game. But she truly hates baseball. (It's a family tradition - no one in her family could stand the game.) So one of the many ways I know she loves me is that she watched without complaint the entire 18 innings with me. Fortunately she was upstairs the next night when, having blown a four-run lead in the seventh inning at home, the Dodgers' Manny Machado could not muster the energy to run faster than a dog trot to first, thereby allowing himself to be thrown out to kill his team's last chance to rally in the game and, as it turned out, the Series itself. That lack of effort inspired quite a lot of cussing on my part, which I was happy she missed. (The cat was a little puzzled, though.)
