When it comes to sports, many of us transcend mere hobbyist or enthusiast. For those elite few, there’s never enough sports; they eat, breathe, and sleep sports. These are the sports fanatics. Fanatics come in many shapes and sizes, both literally and figuratively, but they tend to have one essential thing in common; they’re looking for more ways to celebrate their love of the game. There are many activities at our disposal to get your fix outside of the weekly games; you just need to know where to look. Here are some suggestions.
First and foremost, there’s simply seeing games live and in person. This is one of the best ways to enjoy your favorites sports and teams, as you’ll be so much closer than a TV can allow. Even though your view may suffer, being in the stands of the stadium with your team as they play to win against the competition will make you feel more connected to the event and boost your enjoyment of it. Maybe it’s just knowing how close the players are, or maybe it’s the sea of like minded fans, but whatever the case, seeing a game live and in person is a great way to enjoy the game, so make a day of it with a new outfit from PacSun and your friends and/or family.
Another way to get more sports into your life is by simulating sports at home. This can be done two ways, at least that I know of. First is fantasy football. This allows you to take real life stats of real life players and try to build the best team in your league and then run the numbers to determine winners. Then, there’s video games such as the Madden series of football titles or the Fifa soccer games. These will allow you to take more control of the outcome of games.
