It’s not if your team wins or loses…it’s how the game is played.

“Viewers expressed disappointment when the ‘hero’ lost, but there was no statistical difference in enjoyment regardless of who won. The enjoyment came from the close nature of the event itself.”

— “The Biology of the Sports Fan,” Wall Street Journal, 4 November 2013.
