    29.

    Not really. I'd obviously like to see my teams do well, but I realize on a personal level it doesn't really matter.

    Yes. I don't want to talk about it.




    When I first started dating my broad, my team went a reallllllllllly long time w/o losing. The first time they were down in the second half and it looked really bad, she had a look on her face like she wanted to call the police

    It bothered me when I was younger but I've learned how stupid I was being. I'm embarrassed by how I would let it affect me.

    I have zero control over the game and zero personal attachment to any of the players/coaches.

    I've noticed some people seem to wear their emotional investment into a sports team's success like a badge of honor.

    Those people are huge faggots IMO.

    I don't really give a shit. My rational is the team is most likely partying after the game win or lose. So if they don't care, I shouldn't care.

    I will admit I get upset when Villanova basketball and football loses big games but I actually have a personal and financial investment there.

    I used to care a lot when Notre Dame football would lose but I never went to school there so I don't care much anymore.

    When the Patriots lose a regular season game, it's a bummer, but I get over it quickly enough. It's when they lose a conference championship game or Super Bowl that makes me angry/sad for a few days.

    We're so spoiled here, we expect at least to reach the conference championship game every year

    I will admit that I teared up when both Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter played their last games at Yankee Stadium but that was out of respect for their competitiveness and way of playing the game.
