If the team were a prerenial loser like the Cardinals or the Bengals...then I would not have become a fan.
I like your honesty. At some point we follow a team because there is something about a team that we want to root for. Even a team that loses can be seen in a good light becuase of the heart and courage they showed. Even the Cardinals & Bengals have won games and have been to the playoffs or Super Bowl.
You know, i can't fault someone for being a bandwagon fan either. Geez, your not a robot, you can change your mind about what you want to give your heart for. Some (fans in general) have a communist mentality about sports. Whos says you can't change your favorite team? Or your job? Or even your relationships?
Me personally, i still find plenty of things about the Dallas Cowboys to root for. Actually as a kid i became a fan because i wanted the Cowboys to win so my Dad would be in a good mood that night!
