Huh? I just think being a fan of a team when you've never even been to the city is comical.

Root for who you want, but when you're a die-hard whose never even been to a game, I will laugh at you.

So, it’s your take an 8 year old in south la should save up his chore money and fly out to Atlanta and Chicago and spend some time in each city before deciding who to root for

Strange take

I’m betting those who don’t think the Cubs have a huge national following all all under 30.

WGN was on every cable service in the nation in the 80’s and 90’s. My brother and I watched Cubs games all summer long. They were mostly during the day then as well because Wrigley didn’t have lights until like 88 maybe?

Been a Cubs fan ever since.

re: How come the Chicago Bulls don’t have a large national following?
Well what are you talking about man? People start rooting for teams as youngsters

So you mean like when they turn 18 they have to fly to that city to consummate their fandom?

I mean I grew up going to braves games, albeit I have family there. It's just weird to me.

No need to go all full pride here.

I don’t see how it’s weird for someone to be a fan of the cubs or Braves from south la while also not going to games

It’s not weird at all.

Because fans of the NBA generally follow players not teams. It’s the most bandwagon heavy sport there is.

Yeah, that has been proven to be a crock of shite. Even the article you link says...

Obviously there is no true way to corroborate that number but looking at pictures, it seems feasible.


Someone just threw out a number and people ran with it.

I remember WGN showing White Sox games too in the early to mid 90s. That didn't last long though.
There was also another superstation called WOR out of New Jersey that carried Mets games with Tim McCarver.

I was at LAX the morning after game 2 of the WS in 2017, and there were Dodgers fans at every gate at the southwest terminal. Planes fill of dabs going back to their respective cities. It was pretty cool to see, especially after losing that heartbreaker the night before.

Many cubs “fans” are like American fans of premier league soccer team. No real connection. They just want a sense of belonging.

I think it was a top 10 all time gathering, but those crowd estimates are far from accurate.
