    Cleveland is the freshest example, but it happens every where.

    Normal people from a city/area are brought to tears simply because a bunch of strangers who get paid millions of dollars to play a game by a team located in that city won a championship.

    I am guilty as well, but when you sit back and really think about it you realize how irrational and silly it is.

    They've put everything they've had into the teams for years. When it pays off you feel like you won. I see nothing wrong with it. I don't understand rioting but celebrating yep.

    I have a really great job offer from a friend in Boston. I can't bring myself to take the job because I refuse to raise my son as a Red Sox fan.

    I was a lunatic when I was younger, screaming at the TV.

    Now I sigh and see if there's another episode of Tiny House Hunting on my DVR.

    What's even more irrational and silly is when fans of rival teams fight or argue about which team is better or who's the bigger, most knowledgeable fan in a serious and heated manner.

    Sport stars get paid millions to play kids games. actors get paid millions to play dress up and make believe. Teachers have to fight to get a 2% increase in pay. Your kid might like Stephen Curry and Tom Cruise, but their teachers are the ones who help them learn and get prepared for life.
