The 20 Types of Depressed Sports Fans

7. The Fan Who Kind of Seems to Maybe Be Crying a Little Bit Do not try to talk to this fan. Just pretend you didn’t notice. In fact, let’s all agree to never speak of this again.

I don't watch big games in public. He nailed that one. I did yell at Mrs. Baloo during the Caps Game 7. By the next day, i am over most losses though. Just not while its happening.

14. The Condescending Non-Fan

This person isn’t actually a sports fan and doesn’t really care about the game, but he has somehow ended up watching it with you anyway. Condescending Non-Fans are probably either the unpopular roommate or somebody’s significant other who insisted on tagging along.

They want your team to win because they can tell that it seems really important to everyone else, but they don’t understand why. Once the game is over, they won’t appreciate the full magnitude of what’s just happened. They may even try to liven the mood with jokes. Needless to say, this will be unsuccessful.

Eventually, the Condescending Non-Fan gets down to his specialty: trying to boost spirits by talking to you the way a parent talks to a small child who just lost their first T-ball game. Expect him to say things like “Well, at least it was really close” and “It was still a fun game to watch, right?” before asking whether it’s OK if they switch the TV over to something else.

This person is the absolute worst.



This person is the absolute worst. I can't tell you how many times I wanted to be the fan that punches something (or someone) after hearing, "Well it IS the Saints, what do you expect?"

9. The Pessimist

can't even be in the same household as my stepdad when there is a game on because of this.

it's soooo aggravating it makes me want to punch him in the face

example: Brees throws an incomplete pass on third down, Saints up 14-0. His reaction- "God dammit Brees you f*****g suck you overpaid greedy bastard! They gonna lose every game! Saints need to get rid of his ass!"

Great stuff. The crying a little bit guy and the "I knew it" guy had me cracking up.

15. The Fan Who Stays in the Back of the Room

This fan doesn’t want a front-row seat. He doesn't want the comfy chair off to the side. He doesn't want a spot near the food. He just wants to be left alone at the back of the room, as far away as possible.

Nobody actually knows what this fan is doing back there. He might as well be in another country. Which, of course, is exactly how he wants it.

re: The 20 Types of Depressed Sports Fans


quote:

2. The Single F-Bomb Fan
This fan is a traditionalist. He or she responds to every negative twist and turn with a single f-bomb, followed by a brooding silence. Simple. Timeless. Almost, dare we say, elegant.

This fan actually comes in two sub-varieties: The short f-bomb, or the drawn-out f-bomb. The former gets bonus points for volume, while the latter is aiming for endurance.


This is me. Especially the brooding silence.

quote:

9. The Pessimist


One of buddies is this guy. When watching the Saints games, as soon as kick off happens he starts talking about how much they suck. I have to sit away from him when watching the games.
