I never understood this. I’ll admit I moved around a lot when I was a kid so I didn’t really have “one team” (although I was a ball boy for the Nuggets for a year so I always hope they do well), but it’s not like you as a fan get a ring. And, how does it change your life if your team wins a chip? I’m a fan of the game and I just want to see good games.
I like it when they win it’s the greatest thing ever. They visit the President, go on talk shows, and have parades. When they lose it’s “just a game”. Can’t have your cake and eat it. Can’t have all the thrills of victories without the agony of defeat.
