n.b. SAD is a serious mental health condition that diminishes life quality. It is triggered in many instances by the reduction of natural light during the winter months. Those of us who find ways to fill each winter with distractions put ourselves at risk of low mood, after hopes and dreams are left dashed when the season ends. Two thoughts: 1) If you don’t like the challenge and associated risk of losing an occasional match, do not support a football team; 2) If you choose to support a football team, enjoy your summer without it, appreciating all the beauty and happiness that this lighter, warmer season brings every day of the week.
