Sometimes being a fan is harder than being a player, a coach or relative to either. Sometimes. Fans give of themselves, unreasonably, to the highs and lows of the game. Fans give time, money and mostly, admiration.
The declaration that being a fan is “harder” comes from the full circle evolution of “fandom” that you only experience over a decade of watching sports; of being dedicated to the team as favorite players go through injuries and trades; and of being ready to part with your rent money at the prospect of playoff tickets.
In the beginning . . . fans are innocents. The first moments of fandom are precious and can happen in different ways. Often times, kids are influenced by their parents or older sibling dedication to a particular team or player. They may have even come home from the hospital adorned in a team jersey.
In the middle . . . fans are formed. Boys are girls are old enough to read the schedules and beg their parents to take them to a game. They emulate their favorite player wearing pre-game team warm-ups with the mascot embroidered on the leg. They can paint their faces in team colors and still have the throat power to scream all night!
In the end . . . fans are made. They know more statistical information than an ESPN ticker. They passionately watch pre-game, game and postgame without a bathroom break. These fans wait outside the locker room hours after the game to catch a glimpse of their favorite player. They are more than fans; they are super fans.
