Fanatics

As I’m writing this, I’m watching on TV the baseball playoffs between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees.  On another screen is the National Football League battle between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts.  The pictures of the fans in the stands are snapshots of the people of the city where the game is being played , but they often are not typical.   They are fans…they are fanatics.   For these moments, they seem impervious to the economy in their communities or elsewhere.  How many necessities will they forego…are they foregoing…. to enjoy their lives as  fanatics?
