A sports fanatic is easy to identify out of the many. This is from appearance, their dressing as well as their mood during a win or a loss. This is a person who generally loves sports as a form of entertainment.
Many at times people who love sports have a particular sport they really enjoy; say football as well as a team. When a sports fanatic is watching say a match, all his or her attention is fixed on the match. Usually one has to deal with divided attention with a sports fanatic.
Sports fanatics also wear and own multiple jerseys, shirts of the particular team. They normally have logos of the team they love. They are not afraid to show off their team at any time. A number of them would forego plans just to watch their team play.
It is with these kind of people where one’s mood changes according to the outcomes of the match. In football, for instance, if one’s team loses a match, they are most likely to have a negative attitude or become depressed. When they win a match, they will be extremely happy and excited for their team.

Some people are emotionally affected if their team loses a match, what is your take on that?
I think this is a human thing and it is normal because people are attached to the respective teams they support. And you know how we all don’t like to lose. It only becomes awkward when the emotions are too extreme.
If you could play a sports professionally, what would it be?
Rugby is the sport i could have played professionally.
What is your favorite sports memory of all times?
I think Uganda Cranes qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in 2017 was the best memory if you look at how long Uganda had taken to qualify for this tournament. And it happened during our time.
