Reason #1: When their team loses, sports fanatics cry like little boys who fell down, go boom.
It is utterly human to cry at a funeral. Tears of joy are acceptable at a graduation, because the journey from childhood to adulthood is bittersweet. If you get kicked in the testicles, no one is going to blame you for shedding tears. But if your favorite team loses the big playoff game, the appropriate response is "wait until next year!" Blubbering is just not a normal, healthy reaction. Sports fanatics who openly weep because their team lost are having emotional breakdowns.
