It’s funny…I like sports and have teams I’ve rooted for all my life, but I’m not really “die hard” in the sense that it means THAT much to me. I’ll go certain years where I just don’t pay attention at all.
but, my buddy is a true, die-hard Eagles fan…and seeing what the Super Bowl meant to him and to the city of Philadelphia last year…it really was something to see. People can demean sports culture as much as they want, but me, personally, I love seeing people so ecstatic over that stuff.
The human condition…frustrating, infuriating, and totally fucking awesome.
