Way to "jump on the bandwagon."
You're just a "fair weather fan."
I say ...
SO WHAT ?!
I enjoy watching athletes (gender does not matter) compete, especially at the "top level" of their discipline (I would say "sport" but that starts a whole battle I prefer not to get into). There is something gratifying about seeing someone actually achieve the success they have spent hours practicing for. In no other area of life are we able witness THAT moment.
I am a fan of several teams. I've been a BYU Cougar fan since Vai Sikahema was running back punt returns for touchdowns and before Shawn Bradley or "The Jimmer" lit up the college basketball scene. I swore I'd never be a Denver Broncos fan, but when they changed their uniforms and helmet logo I converted. At various times I have been a Chicago Bulls fan, a Utah Jazz fan (not at the same time of course), and a Denver Nuggets fan. I love my Colorado Rockies (especially because I've seen most of those players at AAA Colorado Springs Sky Sox games!)
But my favorite team has always been ... the underdog!
I love upsets, but I get upset when "my" team gets upset. I mean I really get upset. Or at least I used to. I would invest 2-4 hours of my time to watch a game, only to hate myself later for wasting all that time (if my team lost). After years of this experience I gained wisdom (you can call it something else if you prefer) and I no longer root for "my" team. Instead, I root for exciting plays and exceptional competition.
