    Paul Rudd said he wouldn't sacrifice an Oscar award or great personal success for his Royals to win the World Series. They were a game away from winning the World Series after 2 decades of bad baseball.

    I would rather have great success in my career than my team's titles as well. Girls , guys, colleagues , relatives don't try to get closer based on your favorite teams titles/ success. Personal success will get you the Respect , $$$ , cache , Girls etc .

    As much as I love my teams and hope they win, it doesn't affect my life one bit if they win or lose.

    No, I would not sacrifice the things that actually affect my life and my family for a championship.

    Well yeah, of course I would. Assuming that my team was the one I am playing on.



    Just a random fan, no.

    I've heard guys saying they would give their left nut for their team to win it all so there are people out there who would.

    I would sacrifice my team's success for my personal success. Then once I'm successful enough, I'd buy the Rockets and turn it into a championship team.

    I'd rather have personal success with still the possibility of a title than sacrifice personal success for the guarantee of a title.

    No, sports allegiance develops in one's youth as a placeholder for identity, ambition and affiliation, and later evolves into a nighttime and weekend distraction from adult goals and priorities and as a non-controversial and broadly relatable discussion topic.

    Well, I just moved back in with my mom for two months to watch the Rockets advance to the WCFs. And I might not come back from Las Vegas next month watching rookies.

    What does that mean?

    Also, I'm pretty sure Clutch would be POTUS right now, if he would have just listened to his wife and mom 20 years ago. And BimaThug would likely be Morey right now, and Carl Herrera would have a job. Such potential wasted on the Rox

    the rockets, astros, and texans don't care about us unless we stop buying tickets or buying tv sports packages. they get paid millions and live a very different life from me and you. you think they discuss us folks when they watch tv? no, they surf what lexus or mercedes they gonna buy and which women [plural!] they will bang that night.

    sport teams should give their metaphorical left nut that avergae people pay so much for tickets, expensive and crap beer, take 2 or 3 hours out of their day to watch them play a game.
