Supporting a sports team that doesn't do very well could actually be harmful to your own health.

But people love rooting for the underdog.  And I'm gonna eat and drink more DURING the game if my team is winning. :tu:

Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along.  Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone?

Whenever I watch England play, my tummy gets too upset and nervous to eat anything. It really depends what the score is by halftime, rather I'm gonna eat at all or not. My poor nerves isn't as resilient as they used to be!
haha ;)

You've got to support your team, even if they're losing, even if it's killing you. Nothing's lamer than a fairweather fan who jumps on the bandwagon when their home team finally starts winning.

when I saw the title of this thread I thought to myself.., 'you support Leeds United-you're doomed' but then I saw it was about some kind of depression-based binge-eating I thought 'grab another beer and a pork pie, it'll all come off at work tomorrow.....
.
yaay! beer & pies!!
(plus Leeds are doing ok atm, so i'm undepressed-bingeing, which makes it a wise and healthy thing, according to the study, so i'll mark it down as being a workout.....)
