I don’t get it. Why do people do that. I’ve been to numerous sporting events where fans wear gear of teams that aren’t playing in that game. At A’s games, I see numerous fans wearing Giants gear. The Giants aren’t playing the A’s, so what’s the point? Is it to prove something to the people at the stadium? It’s a the “look at me” kind of attitude that confuses me.
Same thing happens in football too. I’ve seen Tony Romo jerseys at 49ers practices during training camp and I’ve seen irrelevant jerseys at games too. Why do people do that?
I can get that they are wearing it t show they are a fan of a certain team. But it’s not the place for that. For a game between the A’s and Indians, showing up in a Mariners jersey makes no sense.
But fans do it all the time. It’s that attention-seeking mentality that really just confuses me. Can someone explain to me why people do this?
