“_____rage” widens again: sideline rage

This is mostly the parents watching kids stuff.  The take here is that the triggers are much like those of road rage (which surprises me: more below).  Goldstein says that road rage is triggered by ego-defensiveness.  He goes on (as interpolated by MSN) to tie this to taking responsibility.  The emotions triggered by competition are very similar to those triggered by combat, from satisfaction to bitter anger at defeat.


… Rage I’ve felt and seen has been due tail-gating, getting back to the driving thing.  I’m dubious that the two are tied, although I can see similarities in probable triggers and responses.
