My loyalty will remain because they are my home team, and I reserve the right to be passionate about them, but, when I feel so DOWN and depressed over a stupid football game, I need to refocus my thoughts, and my passion.
Sorry BC for being such a downer this morning, but, I've had enough!!! I needed to vent!
Sorry to hear. I've been there. Everyone has to find their own balance and what works for them. For me, I decided to stop spending money on the team. I watch every down of football, usually more than once, and I wear my gear and prop them up every chance I get. But I refuse to spend any more money on this team. I sold my PSLs and season tickets and now I have a great seat with an HD view, all the really good beer I want, the convenience of my own kitchen and restroom, and a pause button.
The losses still irk me, but I no longer actually feel depressed or pissed off when they lose. And as a side benefit, tuition is easier to meet these days.
