unenthusiastic sports "fans"
As a redsox fan since birth, and a die hard sox fan at that, I have a lot of trouble dealing with the lethargic sports fans you often find around the country. I'll site the chicago cubs and their fans as the most frustrating case for me. Cubs fans claim to be hardcore baseball fans, but when you go to a game at wrigley field, where is the energy? Cubs fans use their games as casual social events; there is no excitement or anger. While I am not an angry person, watching the redsox struggle is incredibly frustrating and causes me much anger. There is no comparison between the mood at a game at fenway and a game at wrigley. So until I see serious commitment and energy from the calm, pleasant fans of the midwest I can only view them as phonies and a very large pet peeve of mine.
