    There is also Met fans of which Hockeybeat is one. If anyone has a chance google "The Flushing Effect". It is a study done by Queens Community College on the correlation between clinical depression and being a Met fan.

    Report lists 4 key factors of being Met fan that can cause enviromental depression:

    1- decreped stadium draped in repulsive blue and orange tiles
    2- Mr Met
    3- Driving the Van Whyk Expressway or taking the # 7 train to get to Shea
    4- playing second fiddle to Yankee fans

    Hard to take you seriously when you exploit our trust and naivety to try and out people.

    and don't fucking insult my intelligence by pretending you weren't trying to do exactly that a couple weekends ago. First disagreement in years (one started by your insistence that since I don't like a certain blog I must be a fuckin idiot) and you pull the outing card. I regretfully and repeatedly told Moddy to do things that were anatomically impossible and he never tried that.

    real fuckin cool.

    Not to make a big issue, but I'm not sure this is true. I've known a few people who suffer from clinical depression in my time, and eventually I find out that one thing I said at one point made a big impact (for good some times, for not so good other times).

    One thing said here might help. Not in the biggest scheme of things, but it might help someone make it through their day, or brighten it when everything else is gray.

    That might not have been the way you meant your phrase, I can't know, but I figured I'd just throw it out there.

    oh so that makes it acceptable? It's cool to exploit people who once trusted you? Cool to use it as a hammer in case they ever deign to realize you're completely fucking full of shit?

    Blow me...

    Uh, guys? Not to earn another self-imposed suspension by sounding like someone I shouldn't, but take it to PM?

    HB - head over to the Bronx on Monday and watch a real team - perhaps eat some Yankee stadium red clay. You'll fee better.

    And this thread, until today, used to be a nice haven for that. People didn't have to worry about the stigma of depression around here.

    Then the idiots took over, blabbering about homeless people and blasting people for being "whiny pussies." ::)

    Look, if you guys don't think depression is a big deal or something to joke about, then don't post on this thread. It's more than not being funny, it's just rude and childish. I feel like I'm back in high school.
