“My husband is a huge Patriots fan.  Fortunately, they don’t lose a lot because he gets depressed and angry for at least two days if they do.  He was very excited for the Super Bowl this year because of the rematch.  Unfortunately, as we all know, the Giants won and that sucks for me, too.  I tried talking to him, but he just grunts and walks away.  I tried “cheering him up,” but he said he was depressed and “not in the mood.”  And this isn’t the first time this has happened.  Anytime one of his sports teams doesn’t win, he doesn’t want to fool around.  Am I being selfish and overreactive?  I mean, it’s just a game!  How long does it take most men to get over a loss for their team.”

What do you think?  Do sports fans take it a little too far by getting so into the game, they feel the loss for days afterwards?
