Get real, people

This is in response to the whole Should Nick Swisher have been laughing stuff that still seems to be floating around here, and elsewhere.

I take issue with people- fans, really- saying how players should be acting during a blow-out, or after a tough loss. In addition to this crap with Swisher, I remember a couple of years back, hearing people on talk radio giving Robby Cano grief when he was spotted out at a bar having fun after the Yanks got bumped from the playoffs.

This is their job, people.

What do you do when you have a crappy day at the office?? I myself try and laugh it off. Maybe go out from some drinks afterward, you know, try not to let ruin my whole life. I don't sulk around to make sure that everyone who may see me knows I am having a bad day.

Being a fan is an emotional thing- that's all we have as fans, an emotional connection to the team we love. And while sure the players want to win every game, there is an understanding that they won't- just like I know everyday at work won't be the peachiest as I would hope- and I for one would rather see guys lose and still enjoying playing the game, rather than a bunch of long faces hoping they don't lose again tomorrow.
