I get so keyed up during these games.

Losing streaks are funny. If you lose at the beginning you got off to a bad start. If you lose in the middle of the season, you're in a slump. If you lose at the end, you're choking.

Baseball and malaria keep coming back.

Most one run games are lost, not won.

You can't lead anyone else further than you have gone yourself.
