I could have written that myself. My interest in professional sports evaporated by about eight or nine years of age.

The main draw - in reality - is the bonding with others who use "we" for the team as though they were really part of it. Thus, by memorizing statistics with what little brain they have available, they can discuss them and debate them with other like-minded vicarious "lovers".

Rather pathetic. Imagine if they put that much time, effort and attention into the actual world around them that has real impacts.
