The Top Nine Teams with the Biggest Bandwagon Fans

Nobody wants to cheer for a losing team in a sparsely attending arena. Quite frankly, being a Minnesota Timberwolves fan is just plain depressing. That's why the majority of America (and the fancy parts of Canada) have decided to root for popular teams with sexy fan bases and lots of top play nominees on SportsCenter.

9. Detroit Red Wings

According to the latest information from America’s Census Bureau, Detroit is a fledgling ghost town that has substituted the auto industry for “depressing photos of foreclosed homes” as their number one export. About 17,000 people are left in hockeytown and almost none of them can afford to watch Ruslan Salei search for his first goal of the season. 

Fortunately, the majority of Red Wings fans currently live nowhere near the state of Michigan and have not had their ability to buy championship t-shirts hindered by the struggling Detroit economy.

8. North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball

Have you ever noticed that the majority of people who “bleed baby blue” didn’t actually attend the University of North Carolina, have family who attended North Carolina, or know anybody who has taken a flight that had a brief layover in a North Carolina airport? Granted, the Tar Heel colors are really pretty and Tyler Hansbrough seems like a great cuddler, but perhaps it’s time to find a team that plays within 500 miles of your house to cheer for “dude in Seattle who has a ‘die-hard-Heel’ sign on his front lawn.”

You don’t earn the moniker “The Yankees of Soccer” without having a few million bandwagon fans cheering you on and/or savagely beating rival supporters with homemade weaponry in the parking lot.

6. Florida Gators Football

While becoming friendly with Tim Tebow can help improve your chances of getting into Heaven, it seems a tad peculiar for millions of people – who couldn’t locate Gainesville on a map – to adopt the Gators as their favorite college football team simply because Jesus Christ’s second cousin plays quarterback for them.

Ever since Tebow came down from Heaven and blessed the Florida campus, millions of people have abandoned their previous collegiate allegiances and declared their (new) undying love for Gators football.

And yes, God is watching.

5. USC Football

Remember when USC was a .500 football team at the end of the 1990s before they figured out that recruiting violations were more effective than hard work? Well, neither do most people in the Los Angeles area, because they started cheering for the Trojans a few days after Reggie Bush picked up his signing bonus.

Although the school does have its fair share of dedicated alumni, the minute Brodie Jenner and Snoop Dogg started rocking the cardinal and gold, USC officially jumped the shark and entered Dallas Cowboys territory.
