Say you have a friend. That friend claims to be a diehard OSU fan. Keep in mind he was born and raised in Michigan and he is surrounded by friends and family that are big Michigan fans. He still lives there as well. He goes to OSU games and knows a lot about Ohio State. Now he has been invited to multiple Michigan games featuring non Ohio State opponents. But not only has he went to these, no problem there, but he admits to rocking out Michigan gear, pretending to like them, and cheers for them to win. He claims to do this out of respect for the tickets he gets to the games. Anybody else see where I question the OSU fanhood here? My attitude is he can be just as respectful without donning the maize and blue jersey, pretending to like them, and cheering for them to win.
Am I right or wrong here in viewing him as fake as can be and a not really that much of an Ohio State fan?
