I think I've gone the opposite. In my teens I watched, but with expectations to win more often. As I've aged, its become the other, I expect to lose with this team. All other sports are different.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
