I have a completly different twist on how I became a 9ers fan.
I hate goin with the grain and with the crowd.why do I need to support my hometown team??where is the rule that says I have to??there aint one.last I checked,SPORTS IS ENTERTAINMENT.Its not entertaining to watch garbage.
Now im born and raised in Columbus Ohio,home of OSU and I HATE the buckeyes.Thats all anyone here talks about.I love when ANYBODY beats em.The browns are trash and really dispise their fans,really the city of cleaveland sports in general.have always wondered how they put up with garbage year in and year out.No way in hell did I want a part of that.
In the early 80's,the 9ers n raiders were on my radar,but as a kid u rooted for who the adults around you rooted for(the bengals and cowboys).the 9ers whooped the s**t outta the broncos in the SB in 88,I was like wow wtf?!?!?then the comeback in 89 against the bengals,and ive been hooked ever since,even thru the "lost decade".I jus fell in love with a well oiled machine,and how a team committed to excellence was run.
NBA,I like the HEAT,cuz people from cleve hate Lebron,so I pull for him,im glad he stuck it to em.but not really a fan since Jordan retired,80's 90's nba was great.i just watch whoevers entertaining at the time.all other sports are boring and suck to me.
I JUST SWEAR BY THE 9ERS.
