Bandwagon Fans

Every football lover has a favorite team. As a matter of fact, any sports lover, in general, has a favorite team. Usually, people love the winning team. Who can blame them? When a team wins most of the time it’s still a great feeling to be attached to that team. Most people will stick with their team whether they win or lose.

Most of the time, people choose a team to follow based on their geographic location. In other words, people will choose the team they live closest to. For example, if a fan lives in Chicago, they will likely choose to follow and support the Chicago Bears. However, this isn’t always so. I know this personally, having grown up around the Chicago area.

Surprisingly to some, many of the fans around Chicago are Green Bay Packer’s fans. This is even more intriguing because the Packers are considered the arch nemesis team of the Bears. At the same time, to other, this isn’t as surprising since Green Bay is about a 3 hours drive from Chicago. Many people from the Green Bay area could have simply moved to Chicago but retain their support for the Packers.

Let’s switch gears to the Patriots. The Patriots are arguably the hottest team right now. We have a great quarterback in Tom Brady and a great coach in Bill Belichick. The Patriots have won 2 out of the past 3 Super Bowls. Because of this, it should be no surprise that some people from across the States would want to see them win again!

There’s nothing necessarily wrong with being a bandwagon fan. Sure, that is a very arguable statement. Even longtime fans of the Patriots might be cautious with these new fans. in the end, however, Patriots fans are Patriots fans and will get along to watch the big game together.

The Patriots’ Superbowl

To some people, the Patriots can be compared to the Chicago Bulls basketball team from the 1990s. For many years, the Bulls won the NBA championship. At the same time, the Patriots also won the Superbowl for the first few years of the 2000s.

The difference between the two teams is more than the sport. The Bulls were great in the past. The Patriots, however, were great in the past but are also great in the present. They are so good that they just won another Superbowl this year!

Bill Belichick is a great coach. Tom Brady is a great quarterback. The rest of the team are stars as well. Put them together, and the NFL has a winning team.

The Patriots are based out of New England. However, the team has fans in every state. I’ve seen something like this before. I used to live in the Chicago area. Of course, my team was and still is the Bears. Our main rivals are the Green Bay Packers. I will be the first to admit that the Packers usually win when they go up against the Bears. The Packers are so popular, that there are a number of Packers fans in the Chicago area.

This year, the Patriots are off to another strong start. Will they win another Superbowl this season? That would make them back-to-back Superbowl champions. If they’ve done it before, they can do it again. The last time they won the Superbowl two years in a row was in 2004 and 2005.

No matter what team fans like the best, one thing is certain. The Patriots are a great team and should be respected as such. Perhaps that’s why it feels so good when a team like the Bears beats a team like the Patriots. They are the current standard that needs to be topped.
