Offside Memories: Psychologycal Analysis of Similarities

Team USA is playing today in the soccer World Cup in Brazil. Do you have any funny/harrowing/interesting memories from a sporting event you attended, participated in, or watched?

Why do we love sports so much? How could sports unite people from all over the country and cheer their club? It all lies in the similarities between the club and the fans, usually they have same nationalities, or races, or even hometown.

We love similarities, our brain craved for it. We tend to like people who have similarities with us, whether it’s hobby, the way we do things, or the same dream and goals in life.
