Popularity is very important......
if you're a gold bricking c*** still in high school.
This has nothing to do with baseball
Don't give me that BULL****! I went to 8 Dodger games in the 2005 season. Don't tell me that there wasn't another huge influx of Korean bandwagon fans. I saw the Choi jerseys. I met and spoke with dozens of Koreans who started bringing their kids to games. Don't tell me there weren't wild chants of HEE SEOP CHOI going through the stands when he was up in the late innings. I saw that **** over and over. Craziest friggen thing I've seen at a baseball stadium, fans going nuts over that never-was. It wasn't just the bandwagon fans either.
Have you ever noticed when you go to tsn.ca that pretty much all of their non hockey sports coverage is of Canadian athletes?
It's called Nationalism. It's nothing new. Look at all the Slovenians that joined LGK since Kopitar was drafted. Are they bandwagonners too?
As someone who has posted here for a long long long time, I can tell you that pretty much every Kings player and prospect has had his fans and even posters picking usernames of them and many accomplished far less than Hee-seop. It's called being a fan
You do recall that my comments are in response to the OP's and subsequent posters comments on the Angels bandwagon fans? The whole point is that calling "bandwagon" is silly. My previous post was to say that while Dodger fans love to point at Angels fans and say bandwagon, they enjoy the benefits of bandwagon fans themselves and have for a long time. In short we agree, this bandwagon bs is stupid.
