. People like you seem to struggle with a basic concept that others wont always enjoy the same thing you do
LOI Fans like you remind me of Vegans who cant understand people that eat meat - Just astounding smallminded.
I honestly do not have a problem with other people enjoy things differently to me. I'm in my 50s, vive la difference and all that.
I do think that there is value in having an intimate connection with the place you come from. There is an American chap called Wendell Berry is good on all that. Although he wouldn't be on the internet talking about it, as he never bought a computer
Not an LOI fan as it happens. Used to go to Milltown 40 years ago in the Mick Leech era. Vast majority of games I go to now are Dublin county hurling or club games, but have friends who are Bohs members (one or two of them not be greatly fond of GAA as it happens!) so we have a common bond of being part of a pretty small community.
I suppose it is the same thing as people who prefer blues sessions or trad sessions or live rock gigs with local bands as opposed to just consuming via the media. If others choose differently then, that's their choice.
What's unique about any culture are things distinct to it. Not that people in Malaysia or Japan are besotted with EPL or American baseball. Is there a Game of Thrones community?
