My name is Ben. Ive loved sports ever since I can remember. I love the Yankees, Devils, GIants, and Chelsea FC. I write for the Bleacher Report because I want to be a sportscaster or reporter, and I figure this is pretty good practice for either one. I also do it because I love writing, and I love debating sports with people

    Ben, I'm not working in firefox today so here's some editor's feedback.

    Awesome article! I just made some minor changes throughout. Make sure everything checks out to your liking—keep up the article.

    Now as a reader and not an editor, I thought your article was very moving. We all need to learn to take a step back and realize that most of the time we don't even really know the athletes we are rooting for. We act like they are major impacts in our life, but they aren't are true friends and why do we care so much about them and their success. There is definitely a bigger question to fans' entrancement with their teams' success. Overall, I really enjoyed your really made the questions start going through my head.
