ing that you have to be a fan of a team simply because they’re in the same state as you is ignorant and close minded.
The beauty of sports is that there’s so many different people and styles to be a fan of. Similar to religion, it’s impossible to tell someone what team they should believe in.
It doesn’t matter what city your teams plays in, or what team your favorite player has been traded to. All that matters is that you’re loyal.
Loyalty is rare. When things get bad, most fans up and leave, simply because it’s the easy thing to do.
Only being a fan of the winning teams is just an easy way to show everyone that you’re a follower. The real excitement is watching the team you love, that’s been losing for decades, finally overcome adversity and become a winner.<
