The Fan Effect

The subject of the sports fan's effect on sporting events popped into my head today with March Madness looming on the horizon.  I suppose if you want to get technical it already began, but that's an entirely different lengthy topic of conversation.  

Personally, I've become more of a "best seat in the house" type of fan as I've gotten older.  The atmosphere of a big game or a heated rivalry is an unbelievable experience and one that should not be missed if you have the opportunity.  Still, my priorities have changed now that I have reached my thirties.  That's why I now prefer to take advantage of my large screen TV in all of its HD glory.

I suppose the main reason for this journalistic foray is to take an opportunity and pay homage to the loyal fans who fight through the traffic and the crowds (occasionally fighting through the hostile fans) to attend our beloved Horns' games.  A few of you mentioned you were traveling to Little Rock for this weekends games and I'm sure all of us truly appreciate your presence there (good luck with those scary hawgs by the way).  It's hard to imagine a game with no fans present.  I guess the closest example of a fan-less contest would be what the SEC tournament went through last week when they had to move the games to Georgia Tech's home floor.

So, with all that said, I'm curious just how many here actually attend the games compared to the other types of viewing options available.  Keep in mind that there is no wrong answer here.  One type of fan isn't superior over another, so answer truthfully.

Go Horns!
