I just realized that I'm using a kind of Pascal's Wager to determine how I should feel that the Giants are still flirting with the playoffs:
|I believe that the Giants are in this thing||I'm very, very skeptical that the Giants are in this thing.|
|Giants prove they are in this thing||I'm excited!||I'm excited!|
|Giants prove they are not in this thing||I'm devastated.||Meh.|
I'm not being a cynical jerk; I'm only being coldly rational. Maybe a little cynically jerkish, I suppose. And as the Giants prove that they are, in fact, not quite out of this thing, and that they may indeed even qualify as a team that can be described as in this thing, I'm getting kind of excited. The team is still crazy flawed, but a win tomorrow would really make something out of what was previously nothing. Go Giants.
