Do you remember the first time you went to a live action game? What was the atmosphere like? What were the fans chanting? Were you captivated from the moment you pulled into the parking and you saw all the tailgaters, when you handed over your ticket, took your seat amongst the crowd, cheered for a basket, goal, touchdown, for every single point your team scored, and until the very end when you went home in a sea of hometown colors.
We sure remember our first ball game, and a lot of it has to do with the people who surrounded us.
The best part about going to a ball game may not even be the action on the court, field or ice. Many-a-times, it’s the fans in the stands, the chants, the towels and the overall atmosphere. Fans are loyal to their teams, go above and beyond for their players as if they are on the team themselves.
They are the sixth man, the 12th man and sometimes, they are the most important man.
Fans are a big part of a franchise, they are the supporting actors who can make or break a team. They stand the entire game along with the players. They scream and chant and lose their voices for the sake of the team and the franchise. They have been through the worst of days, the worst losing streaks – just ask Chicago Cu fans. They have been through players leaving, retiring, breaking their hearts.
But the most important thing about fans is that they are loyal. They are alway there. In some cases, such as the Green bay Packers, they are more than just fans and more than just loyal to the team, they are the owners of the team.
These are the best fans around the world:
The Boston Celtics are historically the greatest team in the NBA. No one can talk about the most talented teams in history without looking back at the Celtics of the late 1950s and entire 1960s, they were unstoppable. They also built themselves one of the best fanbases in the world. These guys know what it’s like to be on top of the world, and for a while, and they’re always hungry for more. Need some reassurance? Just look at their fans during this postseason, 2017. You can also find Celtics faithfuls all over the country, repping their teams in away games on both coasts.
