    at least with sports teams you likely became a cubs fan when you were 6
    and there's a lifetime of joy, pain, hope, more pain and good memories that go with it
    I can understand the pull that has on people

    Debate is fine, but when a difference in opinion only leads to personal attacks, then it is a waste of time.

    That we, as people, put way too much time and effort into things we cannot control.
