DEARSUGAR and Striking Out Sabine need your help. Guys are to sports as women are to talking on the phone and chatting all day; they can't live without it. Does anyone have any suggestions/tips to help Sabine understand a man's love of sports? What are some of the things that have helped you ladies through a rough season?

Dear Sugar
It's playoff season right now in baseball and my husband is a die hard fan. To him, this time of year is like Christmas for weeks on end. The problem is that his favorite team was just eliminated and he can't shake his bad mood.

I am sure many women can relate when I tell you that I honestly don't know what to do to cheer him up. To me, it's just a game but to him it's so much more.

I have tried to be understanding in past seasons but I really can't fake it anymore. I don't know what to say to cheer him up and I don't feel like a game warrants him to be moody and allusive toward me. Can you gals lend some perspective on this for me? Striking Out Sabine
