Fans, we apologize that our blog has been defunct for quite some time now. Life came in and shit got busy around these parts, but we’re back and although posts won’t be going up as frequently as they were in the past, we’ll try to do what we can. This is more of a random post, but it is about something that has bothered me for years and I have never really said anything about it. Here goes, feel free to comment and tell me if it sucks or I’m an idiot or you disagree.
I was watching the Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets game yesterday. The game sucked but that’s besides the point. After a touchdown the scoring player ran towards the crowd and they showed a shot of the fans. There, sitting no more than three rows from the field was some douche in a Pittsburgh Steelers jersey and hat. This sounds like something that is just petty and stupid to complain about but it is one of the most annoying things to see. Even if you don’t have a loyalty to the home team and are just an NFL fan, it has to bother you just a little bit. Why would some guy feel the need to just get decked out in a team’s gear that has no relevance to this game being played. Like clockwork, you can count on it happening at almost every game of any sport you go to. Like bro, we get it you like the Steelers, but don’t wear their shit to a game that has nothing to do with them.
You know what I’m talking about. This is not singled out for Buffalo Bills home games, or even NFL games for that matter. You can go to a Yankees vs. Orioles game at Yankee Stadium in May and you are guaranteed to see at least one or two assholes wearing a Red Sox hat or hoodie just to be different, and make a statement. I hate these people more than I can explain in a simple blog post. I have no issue with there being fans of the opposing team being there and supporting their team and wearing jerseys/hats/hoodies…whatever. That is expected. I have done it multiple times and so probably have you. Do that and enjoy watching your team. But don’t be an asshole wearing a Peyton Manning jersey to a Giants vs. Redskins game and don’t be a douche wearing a Chase Utley jersey to a Mets vs. Nationals game. By all means, be a fan of your team and love them and cheer for them, just do it when and where they are playing. Don’t try to be cool and make a statement by wearing a random jersey for the sole purpose of getting a reaction from every other person in the stadium. They don’t think you are cool, or original or trendy. They think you suck.
P.S. On a similar and related note, please also don’t be like this guy below. This guy is the worst of the worst. He wore a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey to a Cleveland Indians game following “The Decision” and the only reason you do that is to piss people off. These fans are already miserable enough. Cleveland sports fans are dedicated, loyal, and put up with their teams sucking. Don’t be this guy. And don’t pretend you live in Cleveland and were just a LeBron fan, not a Cavs fan.
Sorry if this was poorly written and pointless, something just needed to be said.
