Sports crazy

The deluge of IPL-3 is all over me. Although I decided not to follow it this year, for a multitude of reasons that I will not delve into now, it is hard to be a pariah when it is the talk of the town. I at least wanted to be neutral and simply appreciate good cricket but alas that became another broken resolve. My proclivity to the Chennai Superkings could not be curtailed, specially now that it is doing well.

I was wondering what makes a sports crazy fan. Why does it become crazier when the team is doing well? I guess it is to do with success that comes along with it. The success of the team becomes the success of the fan for some reason. The fan feels a sense of tremendous achievement/accomplishment leading to a big surge in the feel good factor. Just my 2 cents.
