The Bandwagon Fans

Let’s face it. If you’re reading this article right now, you probably want the Rockies to do well this season. You want them to be fighting for a postseason spot. You want them to make the first few Bronco games of the season not the only thing the Denver-area media is talking about. We get that … and we’re right there with you. However, if that happens, you’re going to have to be ready for the bandwagon fans.

Yep, these fine folks will sit right there by you in September and tell you all about how they were sitting at Coors Field in April when no one else was around. They probably won’t tell you they were wearing a Dodgers jersey, but that’s beside the point, right?

They’ll tell you all about how they believed in Jon Gray from Day One, how they knew Tyler Anderson was going to burst onto the scene last year and how they’ve been pulling for Chuck Nazty even before he had a beard.

Yes, they’ll be there if the Rockies are winning. They may be annoying … but wouldn’t we rather have them there than not? After all, their presence means a good season in LoDo. I think we could all take being a little annoyed in exchange for that.

Avoidance Level: Low, but growing as the season progresses
