Fans of other sports don’t seem as outlandishly festooned. While NASCAS fans DO look like a Lets Make a Deal studio audience…they dress like that EVERY day and thus don’t qualify. Ice skating doesn’t even HAVE fans…they have an audience.
You don’t see much odd fan behavior in Baseball either unless you take into account those signs with a giant letter K that pop up along the third base line every time the star pitcher records a strike out. The third strike out, by the way, is historically, the reason the state of Mississippi has never had a major league team.
Fans of sports like golf, bowling and cross country skiing ALWAYS (at least in MY mind) exhibit some of the oddest, strangest and downright WEIRD behavior imaginable. Oh…don’t get me wrong…it has NOTHING to do with how they dress or anything they do or say while they’re there…it’s the fact that they’re there AT ALL which I find completely perplexing.
Soccer fans and their behavior is always…shall we say…colorful. I’d probably be on the edge of starting a riot too if I paid good money to get in and half my annual salary for a libation to watch a game that lasts for HOURS where, between the two teams, 1 point was scored. They get a pass.
Or…Maybe I’m nuts.
