Sports fans...dumber than dirt!

I've never been a "sports fan." And more importantly, I've never cared to analyze why.

I enjoy watching a good game. But when it's over, I move on.

I don't see the point in rehashing what happened and question why "my" team didn't win. And don't get me started on fans who say at the end of a season, "we have to do better next year," like they're a team shareholder. Who in the hell is "we?"

But perhaps what happened in Cleveland last night is why I'm glad I'm not a sports fan.
CLEVELAND — A fan wearing a Miami Heat jersey of LeBron James drew the ire of the crowd at a Cleveland Indians game and was escorted out of the ballpark.

Fans in the left-field bleachers chanted obscenities and pointed at the man Wednesday night during the sixth inning of the game between the Indians and New York Yankees. Hundreds of fans joined in before security led the man out of Progressive Field.

As he left, some fans followed him toward the gate with more derisive chants.
All of this because a guy wore a LeBron jersey to a game? This is a prime example of why I rank sports fans in the evolutionary chain somewhere bewteen pond scum and cockroaches.

See for yourself. (video from YouTube user FreshBrewedTees)
