Ok, I know BeachBoy hates it, but when I'm managing a game, watching the ball can result in some nailbiting moments, and at other times I'm tempted to jump out of my chair and high-five an imaginary player or coach in the dugout.
C'mon, admit it. How many times, in a close game, you've seen "it's a high fly ball to deep right" and your OF snags it at the wall, preventing the go-ahead run from scoring? "A great defensive play by..."
Conversely, how many times have you clenched your fists when YOUR guy hits that high fly and you watch as it goes "back back back" and then sails into the stands, giving YOU the go-ahead run?
There's nothing wrong with letting the kid in you take over in that moment of anticipation, not knowing whether the next moment will bring joy or heartbreak.
