Ask Ira: How Sunday'S Heat Loss Still Proved To Be A Pleasant, Heartwarming Net Gain

Q: Ira, Sunday’s game made me feel sad and proud.

My wife had a major stroke two years ago and I became her primary caregiver. Because she’s paralyzed, can’t speak, and can’t swallow solid food, every few hours I have to tube feed her or give her medicines through her tube when I crush them. I’m basically unable to leave the house 24/7 except for short trips to the market or pharmacy.

Summer became my only source of joy. Due to my wife’s schedule, my schedule became to go to sleep at 8:30 pm and wake up at around 4:30

Since I couldn’t watch most games, my DVR got a good workout. I would wake up early, open your articles to see who won, and then watch the game if it looked like a good game.

Games 4 and 5, I didn’t even bother to watch. I was so happy after Game 6 because I felt like we didn’t have a chance with our injuries and the way we were playing. I made a big roar, luckily I didn’t wake my wife.

Thanks to Heat for making this season so enjoyable for me. I believe if we were a little less bang, we would be playing Steph Curry instead of Boston.

Also thank you for all the interesting and informative stories you gave me for anything other than my wife’s health condition to read and take care of myself. Even though we didn’t win it all, I am very grateful. – Wealthy, plantation.

A: When people ask why sports? That’s why the game.

I’ve been touched, and I’m sure the heat has been touched too.

Sometimes it may seem so silly and simple, a group of older men running around in short pants throws a ball through a circle.

But sports can make us more alive, part of something bigger, allowing us to go to a place where we can engage in something collective, often while feeling somewhat lonely.

And that’s why Pat Riley was wrong, terribly wrong, when he said there is only victory and suffering.

Sunday, and even this long journey of the summer season, showed that there can be victory and fulfillment.

The season ended with a loss, as happens in the playoffs for all but one team.

But I don’t think this is a season in which many people have suffered.

God speed to you and your wife.

(I guess we’ll just leave it to one question today, to appreciate the impact of sports on sports, about calling games, acting out, bias, trade, free agency, etc.)
