Sports often can impart life lessons.

The “tribalism” of fandom reflects something innate in our humanity. I am a Patriots fan. Why? Because my father was, and we live in New England. That makes them “our” team.  

I have literally no connection to the organization. As an individual, my existence is irrelevant to them. Nevertheless, they are “my” team. And I contrast myself against “others” supporting different teams. Like the New York Jets. Yuck.
