I just don’t understand sports fandom. At the end of a football game, people often say “we won” or “we lost.” But as people watch the credits roll at the end of the latest blockbuster, almost no one in the audience says “we made such a great/awful movie.” So, exactly what level of engagement is required to internalize a spectacle that actually has nothing to do with you beyond your having watched it? Where is the threshold past which you decide to take emotional ownership of other people’s actions?
