    Question How do you cope with a Pacers loss?

    Anymore I've found that when the Pacers or one of my other teams loses, I tend to vent a little online, then completely distance myself from sports news for at least a couple of days. Seems to help me from getting too down since I tend to be pretty emotionally invested in my sports teams.

    How do you cope with a Pacers loss? Ever broken something in frustration that you wish you hadn't?

    I definitely don't watch SportsCenter. I like to watch something on Netflix thats completely unrelated to sports.

    Kicking the old dog usually works for me. It's almost blind and deaf, so it's easy to slip up on.

    I usually go for a run or at least a walk if its late and I don't want to have to shower again. I try to avoid talking to people immediately after because I know I'm about to be more venomous than is called for.

    Play Call of Duty.. There's something about killing someone in a virtual world that's makes people feel better.

    Over the years I've lost many game and the teams I root for have lost many games. I never get too high over a win nor too low over a loss. Teams lose, my teams lose. When I coached my kids I always told them that i don't worry about losing a game, but I'll set up nights trying to figure out how to win the next time.

    What loss?
    If games are won and lost on a calculator and piece of paper, then why do we bother to play them?

    I've been emotionally invested in this team since a small child. Back in my childhood years I cried, but now as an adult I will come here on PD and vent, go on the pacers facebook page and vent and then stay away from media outlets like ESPN etc. When I wake up the next morning it STILL bothers me but then I start looking forward to the next game. At least we don't have to wait a week for the next game like we would after a Colts loss.
    And the walls came tumbling down.....

    I tend to try to back my team and proceed to get reamed out for it.

    That's the trend of late.

    But in my younger days, yea, I would have DAYS where I was in a funk for certain games.

    After Reggie's last game I was darn near inconsolable for weeks. It was pretty bad.

    I stick my head in the sand and hide until the next game.

    I watch my Pittsburgh Pirates play baseball and I immediately forget about the loss after banging my head against the wall after the 17 strike outs.

    Avoid anything sports related for at least the evening.
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    This is me for the rest of the night (unless I have something more important going on...but what is more important than my sports teams??)

    Sometimes I hop on 2k and beat somebody online with the Pacers to make it feel like the loss never happened.
