As a Braves fan, I often have the lack of enthusiasm of Braves fans thrown back in my face by Philly fans. “Why don’t they sell out their ballpark, even for playoff games?” I’m asked. “We may be overly enthusiastic,” they say, “but it’s just because we’re passionate.”
And I can’t argue those points. Really, I have no response. Braves fans do suck at selling out the park. It’s hard to match the enthusiasm of Phillies fans. It’s a point that I’ll freely admit.
But sometimes a lack of enthusiasm is … cooler.
Thanks to heyblueyoustink for the heads up.
