But some people take just things way too seriously and personally in a way that goes beyond passion. Especially when the team is barely out of the playoffs right now with the chance to be in it by the end of the week, I just don't understand the rationale behind some of these emotional posts.

It's a loss that stings, but no need to take it personally.

Like this guy. You weren't let down by anyone, my friend. I hated to watch those last ten minutes every bit as much as you did, but I'm not personally affronted by what I just saw.

It would be holier than thou if I looked down on you as a lesser person because of your words or actions. I don't think I'm superior to you because I am not emotionally damaged by the game; I just can't understand your rationale behind your extreme emotions, that's all.
my point is that it's okay to overreact after a game like this. i'm not arguing that i'm emotionally damaged, and the guy you were talking to originally admitted he was overreacting. how can you not be pissed after a game like that? of course nobody takes it personally no matter what they say in the heat of the moment. but as fans, how can you not feel let down? they blew a 3 goal lead with 8 minutes to play and are off to quite the mediocre "start" to the season (it's still early and there is a lot for a young team to learn from a loss like this). still, we have valid reasons to be pissed, overreactions aside.
