What drives TRUE football fans crazier than bandwagon fans? The only thing that I can think of would be a dropped TD pass in the end zone. You see, a lower level bandwagon fan wouldn’t even know what this means. That’s because a typical bandwagon fan never watches a game in its entirety. They’ll go to a superbowl party and eat, drink and decide which team to cheer for … based upon a rivalry with a friend, or (gasp) the color of the team’s jerseys.
So, what do we do about this group of people? NOTHING. What can we do? Trust me, I’ve tried “schooling” them, ridiculing them and exposing them on Facebook. Nothing works. So, we might as well look at the bright side. They buy tickets and fanfare. That revenue allows my team to keep acquiring good players and get better. Yes, this is me looking for the silver lining, and yes, I’m doing this because, well…I got nothin’ else.
