Sports jingoism.. A lot of money to be made here, why care which team? It's a SPORTS TEAM! they don't represent anything right or wrong. To take to litteral hate of other teams for no other real reason than they are "not my team"? Why?
The guy who won the bid is not a victim to this mentality or maybe money just means more to him.. But what can you say of some of these other people and his wife? The groupthink "my team, your team", mentality, can be 'fun' on a superficial level but when it's taken to the practical or the fundamental level it's pathetic..
Compare and contrast sports team pride, city pride, state pride, national pride, Left versus Right, ethnic pride, cultural pride.. I say lets learn to view from a culturally neutral light. In the light of the human race as a whole, in the light of equality and liberty, we see how silly some of this crap can be.
