I dunno, I find myself just as interested in the crazy new unconfirmed results and speculative additions/revisions to our model of the universe as I am when most turn out to be wrong...and maybe a few turn out to be correct!
There is nothing wrong with that just as long as you remember that the vast majority will be wrong. The problem is when people, usually in the media, try to hype things up without mentioning that it is just wild speculation and overwhelmingly likely to be wrong because that rather important caveat makes it boring to most people. However if that caveat does not put you off go for it - just be honest about the chances when sharing your enthusiasm with others. Sometimes I also get interested as this stage usually when a model solves some other problem inadvertently i.e. a problem it was not actually intended to solve and/or is something I might be able to test myself with the data we have.
