Are you a sports fan? Tell us about fandom. If you are not, tell us why not.
I’m a fan of the four major American sports, Football, Baseball, Basketball and Hockey.
There is only one sport I purchase clothing to represent my love as a fan, and it is my St. Louis Baseball Cardinals. My father initiated me as a baseball Cardinal’s Fan before the age of five when I attended baseball games.
Growing up in St. Louis I attended all of the major sports franchise games and yes, St. Louis once had a basketball team. I played all of these sports on the playgrounds, and in the streets when my parents were not watching.
However, I now follow my Baseball Cardinals year round, and I travel to see their spring training games in Florida and I pay for an online service to see them play every game during the season.
My father’s influences are revealed in my Fandom love for my St. Louis Baseball Cardinals.
