    What makes fan a "true" fan?

    People like teams from all over the country and some don't have a direct association with a certain team.

    Is it material, time, loyalty, etc.?

    I've always been curious with this question.


    *This is more directed at a professional sport aspect, rather than college.

    Not a cooling fan either. A sports fan.

    I think it has something to do with not accepting mediocrity on a message board.

    Fans are fans for any reason. If they spend money on Cyclone athletics, they are okay in my book.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.
