Emotional connections with watching sports|
Seattle is gripped by
Superbowl fever and I'm amused by much of it. I understand the intellectual appreciation of the craft of sports and watching experts at it. I enjoy the visceral thrill of playing various sports. What I don't get is the emotive connection that many people have to sports that they watch. I could understand it if there was someone playing that I had a connection with outside the game. But I just don't get having an emotional attachment to a sports team that I watch when our commonality is the city that we live in.
I'm obviously missing something here. Unfortunately, since it's an comprehension of emotional connections, I don't think that reading comments will help with that. I'm willing to try if someone wants to try though. I suspect that I need to talk to someone in person to really get it.
