Sports Fans

True sports fans experience the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat along with their favorite athletes. Watching sports has given me some of my all-time favorite memories. These include watching Juan Dixon lead the Maryland Terrapins to an NCAA Championship, witnessing Paul Pierce carry the Celtics to a 24-point fourth quarter comeback win over the Nets, and seeing Roger Clemens beat the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

For each of these memories, I own a piece of sports memorabilia. Simple items like team travel coffee mugs and jerseys remind me of those special occasions when my heroes could do no wrong. At live games, concession stands sell souvenirs. For sports fans watching at home, stores located on the Internet sell ideal game-day keepsakes.

Why Sports Fans Never Get Bored

During sports downtime, when no live games are being played, dedicated fans watch sports news programs or classic game footage. When that gets old, we scour the Internet for team news and keep abreast on topics like trade rumors and player development. For kicks, my friends and I join fantasy leagues, which keep us occupied for at least 30 minutes each day.

Sports fans can talk about sports for hours, discussing possible trades, MVP candidates, strategy, and who is the best ever. Simply put, fans watch sports for fun. The fans who truly care about which teams win embark on emotional roller coasters by watching close games.
