Loyal sports fans who beat the traffic

I’ve been a sports fan all of my life, but I still don’t get sports fans.

The other night, for example, I was watching the Indians-Nationals game in which the Indians were leading 2-1 in the top of the 9th. Cleveland’s shaky closer was on for the save.

And fans were leaving.

Fast forward to last night’s NBA game. It’s game six of the NBA finals, and the Miami Heat, who have a bucketload of talent, are trailing the San Antonio Spurs, who are within minutes of winning the NBA championship.

The San Antonio Spurs did not win the NBA championship last night. Miami will likely finish them off on Thursday night.

A couple of weeks ago in Boston, the Bruins were down by two goals with a minute left to play in game seven of their NHL playoff series with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Their team obviously finished, fans headed for the exits.

The Boston Bruins currently hold a two-games-to-one lead in their Stanley Cup playoff series with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Who are these fans? The ones that proclaim, “I was with them all the way!” at the championship parade.
