How much can the MLB playoffs toy with your emotions?
Oct. 7: Ecstatic. Cubs win 1–0.
Oct. 8: OK, it’s over. Nothing to worry about.
Oct. 10: Depressed, panicked. Giants beat Cubs in 13 innings.
Oct. 11: Distressed, hopeless… then ecstatic, best night in Cubs fandom history. Cubs win 6–5, win NLDS.
Oct. 15: Nervous, then thrilled. Party in the streets. Miggy grand slam. Cubs win 8–4.
Oct. 16: Frustrated. Kershaw.
Oct. 18: Frustration turning into hopelessness.
Oct. 19: ????
These things can change quickly, but it definitely wrecks you.
