I am a fan, not a fanatic. There is much more to the world than just a sports team. That said, I love sports and I am passionate about the teams I support. I am with them through thick and thin.
I will not get into smack talk with anyone nor will I wear rose colored glasses for the sake of the team. It is not blind unconditional support I offer but it is loyalty and raucous support. As such, being a fan, I also expect the other side, owners, coaches, players, etc., to do what they can for the good of the team, for the good of the community and most definitely for the good of the fans.
