I get really high and really mad during a game. Usually remain high after wins. Gotten good at letting go after losses. Have learned to control outbursts with my boys around.

My wife daughter and I yell and shout at the the tv haha

we usually just plan dinner around games. Grill some food and have it ready by game time.

Friday’s and weekends I will have a drink or two. Sometimes no drinks depending on what’s going on.

Yeah, I've gotten much better at that too. But a bad loss changes my routine, I stay away from all sports shows after the loss up until the next game. Well, except for the Cards, I come back around mid-week and start to follow them again.

same for all of the above sans the last sentence which will be put to the test Sunday. That said, I’ve sacrificed multiple 1st halves of this playoff run being smashed in the face with water repeatedly by niece in the pool, entertaining her so my mom and dad can spend a little time with her and other brother watching outside since they can’t come in the house right now.

I shout at the TV during Suns, Cards games. I hoop and cheer when we have a great play. Drives my wife nuts.

I haven't watched any of the Suns playoff games - none. I can't take it when they play bad, ref makes, misses bad calls, game gets close, etc. I try to follow the game on ESPN Gamecast. That way, I am up to date with what's going on (score, etc.), but am not actually watching anything, so don't get near as upset anymore. If it gets too bad, I move to another screen and surf to something else.
Then, I will periodically check back to see how the game is going.

Trying to keep my blood pressure down some.:)

It looks like the Nuggets are considering going bigger against the Suns in Game 3.

I thought it was a mistake when the Lakers went away from Drummond and quit playing Harrell as much and went with Gasol mostly. Drummond and Harrell were killing us on the glass. Gasol was a liability on defense and the boards. Pretty sure the Laker coach is gone....

I don't turn a game on unless I'm pretty sure I'm going to be up to the stress and misery. But once it's on, I'm hooked, even if they get routed. I've watched about half of this year's playoff games so far. Like you, I follow the others, but it's easier to maintain a psychological distance when it's just numbers updating every so often.

I watched almost every game of the 1993 run, but had a conflict for Finals Game 6. I remember turning on ESPN when I got home and seeing 99-98 scroll quietly across the bottom of the screen.
