21 Ways Sports Fans Can Be Terrible

I'm not even going to pretend that I understand the way people behave when television cameras are involved. I've never wanted to be on reality television. 

I've never agreed to an interview with a local news reporter. And I've never created a sign pandering to a broadcasting network in hopes it would get me on air. 

Occasionally this kind of compulsive fan behavior results in unexpected comedy gold. Like, for example, when a fan (see photo) visiting New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII shouted at a reporter during a live report: "Hey, local news! I'm from California! 49ers!" 

The reporter jokingly told the drunken disruptor she was doing a story on STDs and then she shot back "No, I don't have a STD. That's so disrespectful!." Something tells me the irony of that statement was completely lost on her. 

Unfortunately most fan-hamming doesn't result in such hilarious exchanges. Generally it consists of an ever-growing mass of locals gathering behind live programming doing anything possible to attract attention whenever the camera pans their way. 

Idiots jumping, waving, grinning, yelling, pointing to themselves and texting basically ruined every live television broadcast in the week leading up to the Super Bowl. And all for what? So their idiot friends could see them on TV in the distance for a brief second.
