Grown men trying to fight each other over the team they support is insane. Isn’t it?
When I seen the images of what unfolded at the recent West Ham United and Chelsea game, it got me thinking of the different emotions that sports bring out in us. It doesn’t matter how big or small, old or young we are, sport brings out something different in us. Its hard to explain why this happens, but sport effects people in different ways. Below are just some of the different emotions and feelings that athletes will feel when they are performing.
We can see that athletes experience different emotions throughout their careers. They push their bodies through intolerable pain barriers, be it in training or competition. They become annoyed with anyone who gets in the way of them winning and they respect their opponent for challenging them to be their best. All of this happens so they avoid the horrible feelings associated with losing games and disappointing those involved around them. Athletes push themselves through all of these experiences striving for the fulfillment and accomplishment of being the best they can possibly be.
