What Kind of Sports Fan Are You?
It's time to find out what kind of sports fan you are! And we are using 2014 World Cup fan reactions to do it!
The "I'm Just Here for a Good Time" Fan
The Legit Fan
These fans probably played the sport they're watching. They know the rules and the strategies. They also follow this sport year round, not just when it's popular to the masses. So they converse about stats, lineups, and history. You'll find them yelling at the scream when a player makes an error or if the coach makes a bad substitution. This fan doesn't get along with the Good Time fan.
The Bandwagon Fan
This fan is more invested than the "Good Time" fan, but they don't follow the sport on the regular. They jump on the World Cup or Olympics bandwagon every 4 years. They know just as much as they heard on Sports Center the night before and find a team or sport to grab hold of and make the next few months fun! These fans go all out with team apparel just to make their loyalty clear!
The Hype Fan
These fans are the ones who have to constantly be doing something during the game. Whether it be belting out the National Anthem or leading the crowd in chants, this fan is all about the atmosphere and getting everyone else involved. These fans can be seen as very annoying to others (see man on right).
The Loyal Pessimist
This fan always expects the worst from his team so he won't ever be disappointed. He's obsessed with the team, but is constantly ragging on them at the same time. He never gets his hopes up so he can't be let down. But he drives others crazy with the negativity! He's the one saying "I knew it/I told you so" when his team loses. And he always wants the coach fired.
The Eternal Optimist
No matter how much her team is losing by, this girl always is telling you, "there is still time!" She refuses to accept defeat until that final buzzer sounds. And even after a loss, she's saying "we'll get them next time!" Clearly, her and the Loyal Pessimist aren't fond of each other.
