Am I the only one who feels as if you don't choose your team but they choose you? As weird as it sounds, when I was around 10-12, I'd watch a ton of Dodger/Angel game, but could never get into them, and back then, the Braves were on like 3-5 days a week on TBS, and I got into them, becoming a Braves fan. Since they aren't on TBS anymore, I've lost all interest in baseball
Oh, I'm also a Wings fan for the same reason as before, minus the seeing them 3-5 times a week, more like a month, but regardless.
Bandwagoners are the worst form of life on the planet. If I find out one of my friends are bandwagoners, they would no longer be my friends. At least since about 6th grade. The type of people who would be a fan ONLY when that team is good, or because everyone else is a fan of that team, that is not the type of person I would want in my life. Loyalty is a big deal. You just can't trust a bandwagoner.
This the reason i am a laker hater. I don't want to be associated with the fan base. Its crazy how many people on facebook all suddenly became laker fans and the amount of flags flying around is sickening.
I don't know about you, but at least when it comes to basketball, I'm a fan of the sport. I try to follow as much as I can of the whole league, and have certain teams/players that I support more than others. With all sports though, the hometeam generally gets the most support from me, but in a year like this year, the Pistons were garbage and eliminated in the first round. So I lent most of my support to the Magic and Nuggets.
Or like last year, I supported the Pistons to the fullest, but if they were gonna lose, I wanted it to be to the Celtics. Because I had been a specific fan of KG, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen for years and felt they were the only ones that I'd be okay with eliminating Detroit.
Football on the other hand I barely follow anymore because the Lions are so consistently futile and I basically gave up any hope for em once Barry retired. And I have no desire to hop on the bandwagon for any other team, because I simply don't like football as much as basketball.
