    I do not expect to be defined by that guy and he held up his side by not providing the definition of my fandom. :texflag:

    LZ should have prefaced it by stating that he's definitely the "Too Cool for School" type...the guy annoys the hell outta me.

    I love LZ. Here's some reasons:

    a. Funny
    b. He got me watching Flight of the Conchords.
    c. In a niiiiice and sometimes overly emotional Houston media, he really does try to talk straight about stuff. Sometimes the comrades can't handle it.
    d. He was nice enough to invite me to be a guest in studio on his radio show. It's fun taking calls and a fun life experience. So I am biased.

    In any event, I don't think any of his categories refer to me.

    Some people think that you can't be a face-painter or whatever derrogatory term some use to describe people who show up to the event of an NFL game in various gear and still try to be an educated fan about your team.

    You can be completely nuts about your team, but still strive to know what the truth is about that team, no matter how painful it sometimes is. Trying to learn as much as you can about the team makes the game more interesting. And you can do that without heaping derision on those who aren't the same sort of fan as you.

    For me....

    Watching football on the couch is fun.

    Watching football of a team you are a fan of and you are very familiar with is tons of fun. Especially with 70,000 fans losing their minds.

    From Marcus' link. The "Bandwagon Jumper" is really a subset of the following....

    I voted "everyday fan."

    I agree. I was just playing along with the spirit of the article.

    I cheer from the heart and analyze from the head. These two facets are often at odds with each other, too.

    He skewed the potential results - 3 of them are specific with the "everyday fan" being generalized into a range of fan. I want a recount.


    .... oh, everyday fan for me.

    Diehard, all go, no quit, unwavering, fiercly loyal, can't get enough info about my team, can re-watch games over and over, dream about Sundays, go into depression when it's our bye week, and get goose bumps right before kickoff every single week. You might sum that up as "Hardcore".

    :texflag:


    Since I didn't see that as a choice, I will go with "everday fan", at least it is in the same area code.

    Are you Hall of Fame Fan or are you Joe Texan? Inquiring fans want to know what it is that you do. :specnatz:

    I should have read all the descriptions before voting. I put my self down as Optimist, but I think I am more a "Everyday Fan".

    Everyday fan.

    But, really, do the "too cool for school" fans really know that they are?

    They probably just think everyone else is stupid.
