Let's say your team plays at 1pm and loses the game, can you watch the very next game at 4pm between two other teams?

I never can get myself up to watch the very next game after my team loses because I am so mad and ranting on social media about why they lost the game during the 4pm game. So maybe today if my team loses I can watch the 8pm game tonight but I will be not be all that eager to watch that 4pm game today especially after a 0-2 start.


Can anyone else watch another game right away after their team loses?

this is called being a fan of the team. yes i can watch the very next game my team plays, even if they are on a losing streak. for instance, i watched the cowboys win five super bowls, i also watched the cowboys when they went 1-15. now why would i do this? because i am a cowboys fan, have been since 1972.

if you are going to support a team, you need to do it even when they are losing, otherwise you are a fair weather fan, and essentially worthless as a fan in my opinion.

No you may have misunderstood me, I mean if your team plays at 1pm and the next game is at 4pm between two other teams. Are you all that eager to watch it after your team just lost the 1pm game.

My husband does.

But he never is "so mad and ranting on social media about why they lost the game" like you say you are.

Why waste your time like that? - is HIS thoughts on the matter! It does not change a thing...

I am basically talking to other frustrated fans on social about the loss to feel better

Sure. But I always leave the bar after my game is over. Win or loose I don't feel compelled to keep my tab growing to watch games I have no genuine interest in. When my game ends I run my weekend errands. If there's still a game on when I return sometimes I watch, sometimes I don't. Frustration with my team does not prevent me from watching other games.

Not when my boot's jammed inside the TV.

I aren't normally able to watch Texans or Ravens games in Connecticut with the Giants, Jets & Patriots eating up CBS & FOX, but if they do happen to be on TV, I normally turn on Redzone afterwards anyways, and when they aren't on like they usually are I just leave Redzone on all day from 1 to 7:45 or whenever the coverage goes off the air.

I watch other games, doesn't matter to me. I've never been able to understand how people react after games, especially on the internet, it is just a game.
