Do you find it sad and pathetic how some get excited and emotionally invested in sports teams and their performaces?

Athletes running around a pitch for an hour and a half or hitting balls back and forth. How incredibly benificial and productive (sarcasm).

I despise tribalism that serves no logical or beneficial purpose.
Update: How is this in any way worthy of devotion or emotional investment?
Update 2: Mental enslavement victims.
Update 3: I consider this massively beneath me.
Update 4: Much like Britain.
Update 5: CORRECTION: their PERFORMANCES?

*Sigh*
