Fair Weather...or...True Blue????

Fair Weather Fan:
1. A fan of a sports team who only shows support when the team is doing well. During hard times they usually bandwagon OTHER TEAMS. They basically have no real loyalty to the team, but still manage to get better seats than you at the game. Strangely they mysteriously vanish at the first sign of trouble.
2. Certain people who only support a sports team when said sports team is having a winning season.
3. People who only support sports teams when they are doing well ie when the "weather is fair." If their team is losing, they don't claim to be a fan, and in fact they strongly criticize and abandon them, but when their team is winning, they are obnoxious to the highest degree.

True Blue Fan:
1. (idiomatic) indubitably loyal or faithful.
2. Will Unconditionally stand behind and support their team regardless of mistakes, losing record, past failures, and negative outside influence.
3. Will proudly and openly support their team and stand up to those that criticize and look for any and all positive aspects of the team, even when positive things are hard to find or few and far between.

I have always said that there is not one life lesson that cannot be learned through sports. I am thankful for the few TRUE BLUE fans I have in my life and you know who you are. There is no room, nor do I have the time or patience for the fence sitters. In my book…you are true blue or you are a Yankees fan…PERIOD
