I consider myself an obsessive sports fan. When my teams lose I get angry. When they win, I get a lump in my throat that forces me to push down tears of happiness. After the Krakens starting the season 1-4, I was mad as hell. When Tara the Freak caught the pass at the end of the Galaxy Bowl, I got that welled up feeling and looked up from my kindle to check if anyone in the room saw me smiling like a kid on Christmas morning with moist eyes.
Thank you, FDO, for producing words deep enough to effect me in the same manner the actual teams I root for on Earth do.
