Georgia Tech Fan
So what you're saying without saying it is that you're against sidewalk fans across America who purchase Tech gear. Makes you sound ignorant since that is the demographic that we are after.
I give more to GT than I do the college I went to and played for 4 years with that schools name across my chest. But since I didn't go to Tech, my money and I are a joke to you?
I see a lot of humor directed to mutt fans buying gear from Walmart, but those folks allow the mutts to have so much dang money and their fans making every road game a home because of the amount of tix they buy.
Let's not knock sidewalk fans just because we are rare.
oh no. not at all. sorry if that came across poorly. I'm citing my cousin b/c he's not even a football fan and never was. he just wants to be a part of the PSU sphere of influence. they don't go to games. they don't watch games (they're all golfers - they're on a course on Saturdays). they don't care about PSU basketball or any other sports.
that is my point: so many of these people don't even really care about football. they hate higher education. but if you ask them, they're HUGE PSU fans. it makes no sense.
I have a LOT of Pitt friends who didn't go to Pitt. but they actually like sports and college football. and like you, they buy tickets, contribute to the school and/or athletic department. have no issue at all with sidewalk fans. it's the ones who just want to be in the cult for no good reason that annoy me. really just fake fans - that's why you go anywhere in the northeast and you'll see PSU signage everywhere you go.
