OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: A's Fan breaks engagement to Cubs fan
Hey, this is oakchick. Just broke up with my Cubs fan fiancee today...I am completely heartbroken that it has come to this. I discovered that he is seeing another cubs fan behind my back...I don't know what to say...
oakchick, you have my deepest sympathy. I wish I had some magical advice for you. If you moved to the Bay Area, at least you could go to A's games!
oakchick, after the heartbreak gets better, consider looking for a companion willing to be a baseball widower. That way you can share other things but your baseball will remain as your sanctuary passion.
I second diamondlil's suggestion. Baseball has become that sanctuary passion of mine, but certainly not my wife's. I can only think of one, two other passions that I have for that safe place. And we all need at least one...
Goodness, you are right. Imagine having to engage in a metaphysical menage trois with a miserable goat. I am feeling so much better now. Thank you guys for your advice and support, especially that part about keeping baseball a sacrosanct part of my personal universe.
How true. Baseball is a passion, a diversion, and being at a game is like a mini-vacation.
oakchick, I went through a really bad breakup a few years ago now and the one thing that kept me going through all of it was the Oakland A's. I know it sounds kind of cheesy but going to games - most of the time just by myself - really helped me forget a lot of bad things that happened. Yes, me and that ex went to a few games together but I spent so much more time there that it kind of became my place. After joining the OAFC I found I could meet great new people as well who are A's fans. Eyleenn and Warren (25wbell) and I used to meet for dinners sometimes to talk about the A's and baseball. In fact that ex really hated baseball, I dragged her to it. So it was always sort of my refuge!!! But now I am with someone new who I introduced to baseball and she really loves the A's now. She even watches the games on TV when she's home alone. But man I could never date a Giants fan, or a Cubs or Red Sox fan, cos the A's are a part of me. One reason why I didn't go to graduate school in southern CA was b/c I didn't want to miss going to games!!! I still remember listening to Miggy get one of those game winning hits - I think it was consecutive win 18 of the streak - and thinking, you know what, being at this game, listening to Ken and Bill, living this moment .. yes, that was a tough breakup, but this means so much more to me.
Baseball is life. All the rest is just details...
You guys are just so great ---truly my baseball family.
So the cubs lose again then?
Hey, I meet the love of my life on Opening Night 2004. Here I am two years later married.
Congratulations. By dumping a Cub fan, your IQ just went up.
