I will admit, I am not a Cardinal’s fan, nor a Ranger’s fan. I am a die hard Kansas City Royals fan. What this means is that I hope each year for something different, a winning season, and playoff birth. I often catch humiliation about being a Royals fan, however I stand true to my passion for Kansas City sports. What will never make sense to me, is a bandwagon fan.
The past week, I have seen more and more Cardinal’s shirts, jersey’s, and hats among students here at UCM. I did not, however, see this during the regular season. Many times people will wait until important games, and end of the season records to decide on who there favorite teams are, this is, in my opinion, gross.
No one truly knows what it is like to be a real fan, through the good times and bad, unless they love a team each and every year. The Royals have been bad since I was born, but my hope goes each and every year. You live and die with your team, not jump off the wagon when things get rough. Is it possible that maybe some fans just happened to start wearing their Cardinal’s memorabilia because of the playoffs? Maybe, however, the shirts, jersey’s, and hats, look pretty crisp and new.
