Here is the definition:

n. a party, cause, movement, etc., that by its mass appeal or strength readily attracts many followers

Yesterday was definitely a party for me and I'll gladly ride this bandwagon (at least until the season starts again and the Panthers get a new start)! Anyone want to jump on with me?? Go Giants!

I'm a Jets fan so ordinarily I wouldn't cheer for the Giants but I have never been so pleased at seeing a rival win as I was yesterday!

But one thing is for sure, I will celebrate this victory with all the Giant fans This game was historical. I can't say it enough how happy I am to see this punk arrogant a s s team lost! ARRGGHH!!! Oh, how much I can't stand them!!!

So if St. Peyton and Sanders leave, you'll cease to be a member of the Blue Crew??? That's the ultimate in bandwagon behavior! Boooooo!!!!

Well, initially, I was not even a football fan. I was more into basketball, but after Jordan retired from the BULLS (and pretty much the whole team did). Basketball became too 'thuggish' for me and lost interest.

After awhile I didn't watch any sports until one day I saw a COLTS game in 2001. It was because of him, I started to take interest in football and didn't want to miss a COLTS game since. Then I came to 'love' the COLTS as a team with this team squad. If you want to categorized me as a bandwagon jumper, feel free because to me, Manning, Tony Dungy, Sanders, Freeney, Clark, Harrison, Wayne etc. are what that made the COLTS as a team that I love today. If the majority of these team members leaves, they are just not the COLTS that I came to love.

Just like I love the BULLS squad of the 90's. It was not because of Jordan's greatness that I became a fan, but it was fun to watch Jordan, Pippen, Kukoc, Steve Kerr, Rodman etc. playing together as a team. That was what won me as a fan.

Besides both of the 2 teams, I have never had the urge to 'represent' any other sport teams. Granted I might like Lebron, but it doesn't mean I like the Cavs or Eli was excellent this past Sunday doesn't mean I would start following the Giants.

Whether winning or losing, happiness or disappointment, I have stuck with the COLTS 6 years before the victory in 2007 Super Bowl, one year of 99% of starters being absent, and on top of that the humiliating defeat against the Chargers. Despite it all, come next season, I will still be representing the horse shoe. If that doesn't qualify me as a fan, but a bandwagon jumper because I was not born and raised in IN and was a true fan by default, oh well, so be it!

Yep no offense Kanni, but that sounds like a jumper to me. I know a ton of people that once Jordan left, no one watched the Bulls anymore. Or if their team is losing, than screw the team I am not watching them, but as soon as they start winning, they have loved that team forever. (White Sox fans) And all you Colts fans remember, it was a Manning that beat the Patriots, but it wasn't Peyton. He was sitting up in a box watching the Super Bowl. So I wouldn't be cheering to loud.
