That Really Chaps My Ass- The “Player” Fan

They say, “There is no such thing as a dumb question.” For the most part, this saying is true. There is no such thing as a dumb person? Totally different story. If you’re anything like me, then you have a great dislike for humanity. I suppose there are some rare good ones in the bunch, but for the most part stupidity is aplenty. I’d like to share my thoughts with you on some of these people. Consider this segment your verbal, worldwide¬†“People of Walmart.” If you have button pushers of your own, please feel free to share them in the comments. Maybe those morons¬†will be featured in future posts.

The “Player” Fan

This one goes out to the sports fans that follow the players not the teams.

While this picture may have little effect today, imagine this same scenario in 2010. Basketball might be the most individual cheered sport of any, but that doesn;t mean that its the only sport where it happens. Sports fans usually root for their hometown team, or a team they started to follow at a young age. For some reason, however, more and more people are starting to cheer for the players instead of the team. I take this as the easy route to the bandwagon. Oh, the one player that you root for is magically on the consensus BEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE!?!? Please… You’ve been a Lakers, Cavaliers, Heat, and back to the Cavs fan for long enough… Not to mention all of the newly found Richard Sherman fans… Oh, I mean Seahawks fans. Here is an idea pick a team that you enjoy watching and STICK WITH THEM! Not because the best player in the league is on the team, but because you like the way the team plays as a whole, and the city they represent! That is what being a sports fan is all about.

These mild weather “Sports Fans” really chap my ass!
