It’s a little strange, is it not, how we can possess such loyalty and devotion to sports clubs? Deep down we all know that they are just running about a nicely kept field, kicking a ball to each other and occasionally into a net, but nevertheless there is a passion about sports that stirs something in the soul. Every match is a beautiful, self contained narrative, a story covering expectation, success, disappointment, failure and redemption. Every goal scored is a triumph, every missed chance a blow. Rivalries grow and develop, favourites emerge, and all throughout the crowd chants.
Being part of a crowd can be a weirdly special feeling. You can lose your identity in a crowd, a sea of white and green or whatever colour your team wears. You are no longer an individual but part of a gestalt being, a composite entity, all reacting the same way to the events on field, chanting with one voice, encouraging, demoralising alike. You wear the same colours, eat the same pies, drink the same beer and cheer and sigh.
Somehow following a sports team can stir up emotion far beyond that which it should. You wear the colours with pride, follow the team with passion, and ride the emotional rollercoaster of the season, hopefully to come out at the end with a smile. NB
