Though the thought of picking and choosing a team to be a fan of automatically infers the notion of bandwagoning, that’s the reality for many new football fans for numerous reasons including not have the luxury of growing up in an area near an NFL team or being an immigrant to the United States.
One fan, Reddit user The_Champ_Is_Here_14, looking for a team to root for decided to pen a letter to all 32 teams, asking why he should be a fan of them.
“So at the age of 23 I decided it was time to choose a NFL team to become a fan of. A year and a half ago I saw SpacemasterTom’s post and thought it was a great idea. In July I sent my letter to all 32 NFL teams and over the next 2 months I received 14 responses. In no particular order here are the teams that responded with an album of pictures of what I received:”
“I decided to choose my team the week before the season started, so on the Wednesday before the Chiefs and Patriots played, I chose my team. It came down to two teams, the Panthers and Packers. I decided to become a fan of the Panthers!
I know this might get buried since after all it is NFL Sunday, but this is the first time I was able to share my story with you all. So if you are a fan of any of the other teams I received stuff for I would be glad to give them to you.
Last of all………….KEEP POUNDING!!!!!”
