The NFL season is just around the corner and that means football fans are looking to outfit their dens or man caves for upcoming football parties with the latest and greatest sports memorabilia. Any football fan sports the colors of their team every Sunday, but a true fan has all the bragging rights. A true fan likely has a signed photograph of MVP Aaron Rodgers during Super Bowl XLV above their 72” flat screen. A true fan would probably also be sporting a hand signed Barry Sanders jersey to commemorate a legend and remember a time when it was not as difficult to be a Lions fan, but you are better than the bandwagon -a true Detroit fan.
Stay true to your colors. Whether it has been awhile since your team has even seen hope of the playoffs or they recently made it all the way, a true football fan sticks by his team. Don’t be a glory hunter, constantly switching which team you support or only picking teams predicted to be in the Super Bowl. Don’t wear cheap looking replica jerseys or flimsy looking bargain basement hats. You are representing your hometown team. Show some pride. Don’t you dare drop off half way through the season when things might start to look doomed. You stand by your team through and through in your Braylon Edwards autographed jersey. And if you are from New York pick a side already, Giants or Jets.
When preseason starts Sunday are you going to be ready?
