I think that was last year's slogan for the Mariners, but that's my slogan for today.
I have a bit of a temper, and by nature I'm very skeptical if not completely cynical. And last night between the heat, the bad baseball and Ian Snell's shellacking, I snapped and uttered the line in the game updates: "I really have no desire to post updates from this game. It's horrible."
Many people found it funny, and looking back it makes me chuckle a little. Cause if I was that bitter about how the game was transpiring - and I'm not even a fan - how were the Mariners fans reacting?
At that moment, I was pretty bitter, Ian Snell had just submarined the game and the Mariners had no chance of winning at that point, none. If you follow my Twitter feed, I began posting links to TV theme shows. Including my all time favorite ...
That stemmed from the fact that I kept playing bits of this whenever Snell, who told us last week "I'm not Superman," gave up a hit.
As I played the theme songs from Airwolf and Miami Vice and Growing Pains last night, we all had a few laughs and had some fun in a game that was anything but.
Yes, this season has been frustrating to watch and cover, it's probably worse for M's fans. Junior left the team in an awkward and sad way. Chone Figgins hasn't hit. Felix Hernandez hasn't been the Felix of last year. The offense is anemic on its best nights, and the quality of baseball has been sloppy and mistake-filled.
But today is a new day. I got a workout in this morning, sat in the sun for a little while and got to the park refreshed. So I'm going to do my best to not get so bitter, sarcastic and cynical - though people seem to find it humorous. It's a game. And I'm going to treat it that way.
How long will my new positive attitude last? It depends on how the game is going. I'm hoping for five innings.
