If you are a sports fan, I really recommend you read this post by Bill Simmons on the what it means to care about your team. This line in particular really struck me.
It’s not about watching your team win the Cup as much as that moment when you wake up thinking, In 12 hours, I might watch my team win the Cup.
It’s the anticipation that makes it all so much fun. The Nationals are on a hot streak right now and I enjoy watching every pitch each night. However, the anticipation of each game is just as exciting. I know that something great may happen during the game or I am going to be disappointed but I don’t care, I just love knowing that each night the Nationals will be there and I get to watch.
