VIDEO: How to cope with your Tigers anger management

Tom Brookens gets mad when the umpire makes calls he doesn't like. Tom Brookens should chill out.

Studies show that about 70 percent of humans on the Internet display irrational feelings toward minor situations. Of those, 14 percent are mad over something that Netflix did. (Source: my own two eyeballs)

I am by no means a psychologist, because anyone can Photoshop a diploma together and only a small portion of people will believe it's real and pay you 80 dollars an hour. Eventually they will wise up. So here's free advice for anybody still mad that Ryan Raburn is playing baseball for the Detroit Tigers. Look, I'm all for everybody owning feelings but this one just makes no sense to me. You can disagree about what his role in the lineup should be, or if you believe Joaquin Benoit should assume the closer role. But if others still disagree with you, or your "blood begins to boil" during these arguments, then my friend, it's time to take a step back and use some simple anger management techniques.

My video advice is after the jump. Hate when videos are after the jump? Then try these helpful hints, outlined in the video after the jump!
