    I see these people in the stands during march madness or any other big event and the tears are flowing.

    I never have. Does that mean I don't take my sports teams too seriously, or does it mean I don't take them serious enough?

    I've never cried when they've lost, but I have teared up a little when they've won championships.

    I work with a guy who says "we" when referring to the local sports teams. "We'll get 'em next year." "We got some good picks in the draft."

    I wanna kick him in the balls.

    Tears of joy I understand - I had the same emotion in 2010 with the Giants.

    I enjoy watching sports but I don't alter my life around them. Some guys think I'm crazy for working Sundays because football is on.

    Agreed. I understand loving and following a team with passion, but when you threaten or attack another person because they are wearing another teams jersey, you are a fucking asshole and deserve to die.

    No.

    Being a Charger and Padre fan since 1977, I'm very used to subpar performances and never get my hopes up.

    Usually.

    The post season is very overrated anyway.

    Team Stan Humphries. :derp:

    The best players on the team I cried over went on to have HoF careers. The natty the other team won was the peak of all their lives, careers. Fuck them. Fuck them in their fat butt holes.
