:And for the first time, I'm wondering if the whole "been there, done that" syndrome has sunk in. More than any other sport, football teams rely on emotion over anything else.October 18, 2005Bill Simmons on the St. Louis Cardinals, a baseball team
:Not only are the Cardinals back at home, not only have they been handed a second life, but out of every sport, baseball hinges on emotion and momentum more than anything else.
I guess the distinction is that football teams
rely on emotion more than baseball teams
