Is this the reason for the neverending bickering?

"In psychology, the phenomenon of Basking in Reflected Glory (BIRGing) helps to explain how the performance of one's favorite sports team can change one's sense of self-worth. Specifically, people will symbolically associate themselves with others, such as sports teams, in order that their successes rub off on themselves, therefore increasing one's own self-esteem. By wearing a sports team uniform, attending their games, or watching them on television, the team's successes becomes the fan's successes, and as a result, wins on the field translate into bolstered self-esteem."

Empty a bag of skittles into the toilet and then flush. It's like watching a five second long nascar race.
