How's that local sports team...

"Support the Team"... I hate this phrase. Not only because it's related to sports [and I'm certainly not the biggest fan of watching sports], but because it raises watching a bunch of other people playing a game to the level of an important duty. "I'm going to a Jets game, not because it's fun, not for my own interests, but for the sake of the team. I've got to go support the team!!!" Like they can't win without Bobby Q. Bleacher-Jockey sitting up in the stands spilling bear on himself and hooting like an idiot. Like if they lose a game, they have truly lost something important. C'mon. If you like the game, then isn't even losing more fun than not playing at all?
