Totally. As if we were really any different about how we feel. All we are is less demonstrative than that kid, having been trained and socialized not to express our disappointment quite so vociferously. Of course, in recent past seasons, there was so little hope, such low expectations that no matter what happened, it was hard to feel disappointment.
The 49ers *should have* won that game. The kid was right. The universe was wrong, screwed over by the fickle fortunes of fate. The kid's reaction seems pretty normal for as emotionally attached as we all get to our NFL teams. Most of us do our screaming and whining and tantrums here on .NET.
