Yes its just a game. But we are immersed in it. We are invested with all our emotion in the success of our team. The whole.."its no big deal" attitude is very strange given the "apparent" emotion displayed in some of these discussions regarding our team.
I mean... I give a **** about this. I'm surprised that some of the guys I've been back and forth with...don't as it turns out.

I definitely get upset if the Giants lose but I don't let it effect anything else in my life or smash the tv up (at least I try not too).. I won't watch highlights or sports discussion shows for a few days after. If they win i'm usually much happier for the week. I get quite tense watching the games so after a good win (like SF last season) i'll watch the game again.
I'll normally watch Monday, Thursday and two games on Sunday. Can't get enough.

1st to use the phrase "In Reese we trust"
People passionately defend Eli and on a message board no less. But, they take the Giants casually. Thus, they put Eli above the Team. Valid reasoning right there.
Things that make you go hmmmm. Uh, oh. NOW i did it.
Edit: And by just a "game", I mean they don't care very much if we win or lose.

I'm actually not sure that it doesn't just come down to coping skills (and age).
For me, I now move on pretty quickly from both wins and losses. I'm a die hard Giants fan, but I have a other things I pursue when I am not watching the Giants, and I rarely watch non-Giants games. I just move on to the next thing. Can't help but think about the game, but you shift focus. It comes it goes, but you move on.
Bad losses linger longer; great wins do too.
