I thought this was extremely well put together. I don't know the last time I cried over sports, but it's an interesting question.
My three big thoughts were: Being at the ND game last year, being at OSU. He does a great job of explaining the fan experience before games. When I think of going to games during undergrad it's not so much being in the stands, what happened on the field, but I definitely remember the sea of Maize and Blue on Hoover street. Thought 3 was how badly I want a sport to care about right now!
(Go Cubs! hahahaha, we're awful...)
