Colorado Rockies: The 7 Things Rockies Fans Must Never Do
The Fifth Deadly Sin: Believing You Can Like the Rockies and Another National League Team
These are the people who we described in our “types of Rockies fans” article as the ones who cheer for the Rockies when times are good. But, at the first time of trouble, they revert back quickly to their Los Angeles Dodgers or San Francisco Giants jerseys. They sat at Coors Field many times but are quick to tell their buddies they were with the Chicago Cubs the whole way last season.
You can’t have a fallback position if Colorado’s season deteriorates. That’s what most people have their Denver Broncos jerseys for in late August it seems. To be a fan, you stick with your team through the good times and the bad times … and you stick with them especially when the bad times far outweigh the good.
Growing up, I had a friend who rooted for the Cubs, Cardinals and Reds. No. You can’t do that. That’s like having three girlfriends and choosing to hang out with the one who was the most attractive to you on that day. “You know, Michelle, I’ve been hanging out with you for a week or so but Pam is over there on a winning streak so I’m going to pay more attention to her now.”
It’s easy to like multiple teams and then root the most for the winner. Don’t take the easy path. Pick one team and follow them through thick and thin. Otherwise, we’ll have to say you’ve committed one of the deadly sins.
