Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, Episode 109: Somewhere Between Embarassment And Shambles

Why do we root? Why do we care about sports at all? This episode answers neither of those questions.

Jason O. Watson

Both Pete and Bill root for sports teams. Admittedly, this is a problem. This episode is not about sports, but about how and why we root for and care about them. On this episode, we explain the methods in which we root for sports, the desire to change the way one feels about both sports and rooting, apologies for all of those things and the strange, horrible evolving nature of remaining a fan of the NFL. All this, plus a bit of housekeeping.
