Stress of being a Clipper Fan

I was reading my current issue of Mens Health (Jan '10) and an interesting article caught my attention. Basically men who watch their sporting team lose rates 7 or higher out of 10 on the stress scale. They go on to say that the deeper our dedication to a team or player, the more likely we are to transform emotional reactions into hostility, ie - throw something, curse, day is ruined etc etc

The solution (via a study completed by University of Mississippi) to control these emotions was to find an on-line forum that discusses your favourtie team and to dump your frustrations there. This may often be aggresive blogging but it provides a forum to vent your frustration with other fans, and even though the language can sometimes be bad / colourful, the losers can commiserate and above all, no-one gets hurt!

It made me realise how often I come to Clipper Nation to vent my frustrations, especially when I am watching a game. The Missus (we'll call her L-dog) obviously doesn't share the same passion for the Clippers as me so it's hard for her to understand how a loss can ruin my day....especially after giving up 20pt leads etc !!

 

So a BIG thanks to Steve Perrin for providing a great forum, for a great team, for great fans !
