Should you cheer for rivals?

By mrasor Published: October 22, 2005

I had an argument with a friend the other day that I thought I should share. My friend Nick said Indians fans should root for the White Sox because they represent the Indians' league and division. I say exactly the opposite. You ALWAYS root against your rivals. What's good for them is bad for you.

I'll connect this to the Zips. If Kent State is playing in the MAC Tourney in basketball, Zips fans should enthusiastically support the other team. This afternoon, as I watched the bottom line on ESPN2, I smiled when I saw Kent was being trampled in football by Northern Illinois.

Maybe it's me being sadistic. Maybe it's me being a good sports fan. What do you think?
