Tender-ish, Liking Care

The writer of this Sporting News article claims that sometimes Red Sox fans care "too much." In the same article he talks about playing in Boston being a special thing, and that it's the best place to play--with the "caring too much" and the intense media coverage being the beauty of it. But why couldn't he have just said "care a whole lot"? Why is a guy whose job it is to write about men chasing a ball around saying that someone else cares too much about sports? What's the perfect care level? Should I go to 5% less games? Set my sights on second place? Clap a few times less per home run? Cut this unpaid blog entry by a few lines?

I don't think it's right to tell people what they should care about or how much they should care about it. It's everybody's choice. Or in some cases, it's just in their blood.
