5 Fan Bases that we could live without
5) Ohio State Football
If not for that HBO documentary on the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry Buckeye fans probably would not be listed here. And it's a shame because the Buckeyes run a good clean program under Jim Tressel, who is in my opinion the best coach in football, anywhere. But after an hour of out of sync tunes about how you don't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan, that lovely fellow whos the Woody Hayes impersonator, and lame unfunny jokes about the Wolverines I grew to depise Buckeye Nation. I think OSU fans need a lesson, you have a losing record against Michigan! You would need to win every game against them for more than a decade just to even the score. Sure now you have the upper hand, but the Wolverines are gonna catch you and add to thier margin, and when they do I for one won't be sympathetic. Good luck in the BCS Title Game. When it comes to Buckeye fans or Les Miles you're the lesser of 2 evils.
4) New York Jets
Let me tell you, my life wont be complete unless I get to hear 16 Sundays worth of the well thought out chant of J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS Congats Jets fan, you can correctly spell your team's name. And guessing by the maturity Jets fans show on the pedestrian ramp at the Meadowlands, odds are they can't spell too many words bigger than that. But they do have the good sense to sue the Patriots over the "Spy-Gate" thing. Can Jets fans spell and define frivolous. But don't worry Jets fans, theres a NFL fan base worse then you, and actually you guys arent even the worst New York Fans.
3) New York Mets
From that annoying mascot on down theres nothing to like about Mets fans. From singing Jose Jose Jose Jose JOSE during each Jose Reyes at-bat, to the fact that thier Let's Go Mets chant is obnoxious, to that Grammy worthy fight song, whats there to like? Well Mets fans you can step right up and meet your poorly run, soon to be last place Mets anytime becasue they are as fair weather as fans can be, so there will be plenty of tickets avalible to Shea Stadium/Citi Field. What most mind boggling here is why would any one be a Mets fan anyway? News flash Queens, the winningest team in North American sports is just across town! And unlike your Mets, they arent going to be in last place next year.
2) Philadelphia Eagles
Nowhere else in America will you find more passionate fans than the Eagles. Then again you wont find any fans nearly as hostile, violent, rude, obnoxious, and above all knowledgeless. Eagles fans are not just the most annoying to be around, they're by far the dumbest. But don't try telling them something they dont want to hear, God knows what awaits you if you do. Doesn't matter if you're right or not, they know all. But much like Mets fans you wont hear too much out of them when thier birds are losing, so thier passion depends on if the Eagles are winning or not. And that chant, theres no escaping once your in the Delaware Valley, E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES. Way to go, you can collectively spell the word Eagles, you've all proven that you're as smart as a first grader. But thier lack of maturity shows they have leaps and bounds to go before they're at a 2nd grade level of proficency.
1) Boston Red Sox
My oh my, how soon you all forget. Remeber before 2004, when it was Aaorn (Bleeping) Boone, Bucky (bleeping) Dent, Buckner, that curse of the Bambino, the Evil Empire, and you had to endure 86 years of futility. You know, the days the Red Sox were loveable loser and the baseball world embraced you becasue you were the likeable underdog the the Yankee juggernaut. Forgot about those didn't you. Now 2 World Series Championships later there's no shutting Red Sox Nation up. And the arrogance Red Sox fans show, as if they're some how better than other baseball fans because they had to wait so long to experience a championship. Don't forget Boston, for 86 years the Sox were a losing franchise and we as a nation had to hear you whine everytime you lost a big game. You know, how it was the curse of the bambino and what ever nonsense came out of your mouths. Because before you won the Series you were the most pessimistic negative fan base out there and acted like there was some external force out to get you. Keep this in mind when you're all pumping your chest about how the Sox won the Series again. My advice, show some humilty, the Yankees have 3 times as many Championships as you, and the Red Sox will never catch them.
