As the Phillies unexpectedly lost in the first round of the baseball playoffs and the Eagles are off to their worst start in over a decade, Philly sports fans may feel an overwhelming sense of depression setting in. But fans should move beyond the bad feelings and appreciate the good times, says Temple psychologist Frank Farley. "We should accentuate the positive and keep optimism going," Farley said. "Sports are not part of life over which anyone should get depressed. Don't let a game take you down. The negative and getting blue and getting down doesn't help anyone."
