Same way you love you car enough to talk about the same shit over and over. Other people think of it as transportation.
I kind of see your point. As an automotive enthusiast, I cheer for my favorite drivers or maybe yell at something stupid that happens, but I don't become obsessively emotional over it, nor do I feel that my world is going to end if my team doesn't win. I think that kind of fanaticism is a colossal waste of energy...
