My interest in baseball is absolutely non-existent. My interest in the Yankees is also non-existent (but so is my interest in the Mets, Knicks, etc.) I root for the Cubs because of family tradition but smiled happily when the White Sox won the World Series. But New York is going insane outside my window- catcalls, cheering, whistling, car horns, screaming, cheering, chanting, setting off fireworks- and I have to say, it's really nice to see so many happy people. Imagine what a world with so many happy people all the time would be like. In fact, it's like a taste of the Messianic era- everyone totally thrilled and happy- taking place in the street.
