In light of the world cup; My facebook is full of sad people. Many many many posts from many different people about the recent world cup match because of Mexico's game. I'm curious to why the majority of people who like sports have the need to affiliate to a particular team. It feels like a lot of people affiliate with a team because (and this is going to be overdramatic for a point) their neighbor had a grandparent that was twice removed from a family but had ancestors who went to Mexico. There is a bandwagon that people feel the need to support teams without much relationship to the team itself. My preference is to just enjoy the game regardless of the teams playing. I like looking at them as they are, ants battling out in a field for my entertainment - very rich ants. Any thoughts?
