Most Annoying Fan Bases in Sports

I’ve been all over. So this is the truth. Here is a list of the most annoying fan bases in sports:

 

Bay Area Fans

Don’t you just hate them?

 

Whether you’re a “die hard” Warriors or Giants fan or a fair whether flipper between the Raiders & 49ers, just shut up about all of it. Being a die hard fan of anything by inductive reasoning makes you extremely annoying. The Bay Area is a particularly spoiled sports region that most people don’t think of as a hardcore sports region. The term “sore winners” comes to mind. Don’t forget to recycle those empty fair trade, organic beer cans after you shotgun them while tailgating.

 

Boston

A fan holds up a ‘Free Tom Brady’ sign at a Red Sox game.

 

Another spoiled sports region. All 4 major sports franchises from here have won championships in recent years. The fan base most likely to physically fight you over a minor disagreement. Shout out to Philly fans on violence too.
A city of “die hard fans” meaning they have so little going on in their life that they pour their whole personality into devotions to a team of millionaires. Millionaires competitors who care less about winning than their loyal fans who talk like they all had strokes.

 

Chicago

Put your shirts back on!

 

Shockingly worse accents than people from Boston. The perfect storm of spoiled (Blackhawks, 90s Bulls, Black Sox from not long ago, 80s Bears) and tortured (Cubs, Derrick Rose, current Bears) to combine for an infuriating brand of in-your-face pride & loser’s lamenting. Go eat comfort food from anywhere within 5 feet of you & shut your yapper!

 

New York

Less than a year ago they wanted A-Rods head on a spike in the Bronx. Now it’s all Happy Birthdays and rainbows.

 

Ok, you do have the right to be genuine Yankee fans unlike 85% of Yankee hat wearers. Hearing New Yorkers belly aching about sports is like hearing your rich friend complain about their BMW.  You live in an overwhelming metropolis – find something better to complain about than Carmelo, Gino Smith/Eli Manning & ARod. I’m walking here!

 

Los Angeles

Lakers fans.

 

Similar to NYC fans, but worse because of general vanity & lack of self awareness; not to mention the entitled mentality all fans of big market teams are stricken with. Lakers fans are the hardest to stomach, directly followed by Trojan Fans or Dodger fans* who will beat the living shit out of you then fair-weather Kings fans. What a cross section of fair-weather & spoiled.

*non-violent Dodger fans are legit though

 

Ohio

I hope these drunks aren’t driving after the game.

 

Ohio State fans, the ones who are so enthusiastic/spirited/aggressive/loud – it makes you love U of M even if you have no rooting interest whatsoever. Cleveland fans who burned their Lebron James jerseys & welcomed him back with open arms. Bengals fans when they’re a fringe playoff team. They are the best of the worst, only because they’re consummate losers/silver medalists, but Ohio State fans are the worst braggarts about their success. These fans are those kids who get trophies despite losing.

 

Portland

Fair weather as fuck in a city with pretty fair weather. And I’ll never get behind a team that does this:

Recycle

 


Maps: Finally Good For Something

That movie Paper Towns opens in theaters today. I don’t give a shit about it, but it made me curious as to what the hell a “paper town” actually was. After a quick search, this is what I learned: a paper town is a fake place that cartographers include on their maps to protect against someone stealing their work. These type of “copyright traps” are hidden inside most reference materials (maps, dictionairies, encyclopedias, almanacs, etc.)

Then I found this: in 1978, the official State of Michigan map included two paper towns across the Ohio border: Beatosu and Goblu.

This hall-of-fame worthy prank comes courtesy of Mr. Peter Fletcher, then Chairman of the State Highway Commission.

Legend has it that Fletcher, a U of M grad, was catching hell from another alumnus because the Mackinac Bridge was painted green and white. (Those colors belong to Michigan State University, also known as the Maize and Blue’s “little brother.”) Fletcher had no control over the bridge’s colors, so he created two imaginary places to honor of his alma mater.

At the time, Fletcher argued that all the Michigan information was correct, and that, “We have no legal liability for anything taking place in that intellectual swamp south of Monroe.” The maps were quickly pulled and have since become collector’s items.

Sports fans, search your maps! Keep your eyes peeled for a Roltide, a Beardown, a Fighton, a Wreckem or any other ghost towns that might strike frustration in the heart of your bitter rival.
