    That's all I meant to say.

    i agree with you and it makes me upset when people like a team just because they win, or because they get alot of attention on bspn ...but if you live in wyoming or montana and you really like sports i guess you become a fan of either a team that is closest to you or a team that you like to watch...

    Well those of us who don't have WPA ties get called bandwagoners all the time so I guess we're a bit sensitive to it.

    I get especially pissed when some douche who isn't even half my age calls me one. That's when I tell them I've been a Steelers fan longer than they've even been alive...cuz I'm old. Not as old as Pap, but old enough. :P
