Why do we care so much about sports?(even if we don’t think we do)

by on Feb.06, 2012, under Uncategorized

So, on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the most rabid fan imaginable and 1 being somehow who doesn’t know which two teams were in the super bowl.. I would peg myself at around a 6. I definitely care/want my team to win, but I don’t follow them religiously.. don’t need to see every single game and don’t know every player’s name on the roster. That said.. after all the food was put away and everyone had left, I felt sort of empty inside knowing that my team had lost. In continued into today, sort of a “meh” attitude to everything. But Why? I have a pretty awesome life. I have a great job with good pay/benefits, I have an amazing wife who loves me and who I love more each day, and a dog that is the epitome of faithful. My family is great, everyone is healthy, doing well (as am I) but still.. something as trivial as a sports team that I follow, losing a game.. and POOF.. melancholy sets in like a fog over everything.
Wish I understood why.
