With the Angels desperately clinging to their shrinking playoff hopes, life as an Angel fan hasn't been easy the last few weeks. In fact, rooting for this team as the season nears its end can be a full-time job. To give you an idea of just how hectic and mind-bending this existence can be, here is what I believe to be a day in the life of the standard Angel fan:
7:00 AM - Wake up.
7:01 AM - Check scores from last night to make sure you didn't incorrectly remember that the Rangers won AGAIN.
7:02 AM - Nope, Rangers definitely won. Commence muttering to yourself about how they never freaking lose.
7:15 AM - Cease muttering.
7:16 AM - Shower, shave and eat breakfast.
7:45 AM - Leave for work while listening to ESPN Baseball Today podcast in your car. Complain about how they never talk about the Angels and just assume the Rangers will win the AL West. Kittens die.
8:15 AM - Arrive at work, sit down at desk and immediately go to MLB.com to look at the pitching probables for the remainder of the season. Using this information, attempt to predict the outcome of every remaining game for the rest of the season for the Angels, Rangers, Red Sox and Rays.
