Rooting For Failure
It's much more gratifying to root for the failure of things and people than success. Especially secretly. Maybe this is why I hate Arizona State even more than I love Arizona, as well as despise the Cowboys more than I adore the Cardinals and 49ers. I think the reason is life is a string of failures peppered with occasional victories, so when someone or something you don't like that much breaks through and does well, it makes you feel inadequate. Better to see them fail and give your misery company.
