Neil says:

I see two problems with your theory. First of all, there was a football team that I played who was really good and they knew it. They would come into games thinking they would kick our asses and by some weird twist of the cosmos, we would leave the field with our asses kicked. Secondly, a lot of people seem to respond to losing big games by breaking things or abusing their bodies with alcohol, not writing to magazines. I'm not saying that this is the best course of action, but my guess is that they get more chicks.

Ben, when you grow up you will realize that in certain matchups, everyone already knows who will win and no matter the attitudes of either team, the outcome will be the same. I have been on both ends of these games. Plus, after you win or lose, chances are you will abuse some sort of drug instead of crying.
