OK, I can't resist.Might that same study have shown that towns with crappy sports teams have shitty workers? What's the delta for good/bad teams against productivity with no sports team at all -- is your town's commercial success inexorably tied to that of your sports team? Hey I know this is all just kindof a psychological shot in the dark. But I've spent too much fuckin' time stressing over the 'skins to think there's not some sort of deadweight loss there.
