"All of those were right except for mine!"
Liking a team is something that connects you to your friends and neighbors. Being a die-hard fan is something that makes you exactly the same as your most annoying friends and neighbors. This is how cities get their stereotypes, because a certain percentage of the town really is the same. For example, some people in Philadelphia really do get into being the most vicious and violent fans around, Lakers tickets are super expensive and people go to the games just to be seen there, and the entire city of Boston is exactly as it seems. How did you feel about your city's portrayal? Why don't you and your friends go have the exact same complaints about it?
