We like to be the home team. The home team knows the field. The home team fans usually get better bleachers. The home team can expect the roar of their crowd no matter what the weather; the band will play the fight song and put on a show. The home team knows how the sound echoes off nearby buildings and where the field dips just a little. Home field advantage couldn’t be better. But then there is the other half of the season: away games. The cheering fans decrease in proportion to how far the game is from home. No one knows where the bathrooms are. The field is foreign.
