So your baseball team didn't do anything at the Trade Deadline - A Satirical Hunt and Peck

Let's talk about it.

Hello there fellow Cardinals fans. It is me here. Scooter. So, the Trade Deadline has come and gone. And...

The Cardinals did not make any deadline moves.

Now you may have a lot of feelings about this. These feelings may be hard to understand. You might be angry. You might be disappointed. But it is important to know that these feelings are natural. Fortunately for you, I have a lot of experience in being disappointed! So to help you through, here are some things that help me get through difficult times like these.*

  1. Ignore your feelings until they go away. Just bury them, bury them deep and never talk about them again.
  2. Imagine an alternate reality where things went way worse. Hey at least that didn't happen!
  3. Watch a fun movie like The Sweetest Thing or A Knight's Tale. These movies are heartwarming, funny, and triumphant. You will forget about what you were ever upset about.
  4. Or watch the entire series of a lovable sitcom like Friends. So no one told you life was gonna be this way? *clap-clap-clap-clap*
  5. Get a dog. Or just play with a dog. Dogs are great. Puppies too.
  6. Immerse yourself in a hobby. Write, paint, make music, play beer pong - anything that makes you happy as long as that hobby is legal. I am not advising you to do anything illegal. Please note that.
  7. Exercise. Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy.
  8. Or eat ice cream straight from the container. I recommend a pint of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Therapy, but you do you. The world is your oyster.

These are just some ideas to get you started. The most important thing to know is that we are all here for you. Unless you start whining too much. Then I'm out.

*I am not at all qualified to give advice on anything do not ever listen to me this was mostly satire
