It is not quite that simple Dave. I mean I agree with you that dealing with your emotions is a good thing, I need help with that all the time. (I admit it!) Some people wear their emotions on their sleeves, I dont think that makes them assholes. If you are a season ticket holder for a team then you have a lot invested in them. Naturally it is really easy to get too wrapped up in their success and failures. I understand that the casual sport fan would not get that. Just like casual music fans do not understand why someone would drop thousands of dollars to follow a band around the country.
I agree. If I'm not getting emotional about a game that my team is playing, it's just not as much fun!! Now, admittedly, needing 24 hours to recover from a major Michigan loss might be a tad excessive in any objective opinion, but it's worth it when the euphoria of a win stays with you for at least twice that long!
And now I know where "Habs" comes from, I'd been meaning to ask that. Thanks for the scoop, Jared! Good luck to all the teams left. You'll all fall to the Wings next year!!
