Are You a Fanatic?

Posted: Updated:

There is a reason they are called fans.  The word is short for fanatic which is defined as a person marked or motivated by an extreme, unreasoning enthusiasm, as for a cause.

In the middle of college football season it is easy to see why that word is used to describe people who follow the sport.  Unreasoning enthusiasm only begins to describe what takes place on college campuses across the Southeast. 

For example, take a look at how some people are buried, sporting their favorite teams' logos.  The casket to your left is just one in a series of burial products displaying team logos from collegiate and professional sports teams.

Then we have Nicholas Weber.  He truly sees Kentucky blue.  At least that is what he wants us to see.  The USA Today reports this die-hard Kentucky fan "lost his left eye in an accident last year, and has just replaced his old glass eye with one sporting a "UK" logo replacing the pupil."

How far would you go to support your favorite team?  On twitter I recently showed proof that I bleed orange and blue in support of the Auburn Tigers. 

Do you have a crimson tattoo?  Are you a fanatic?  Tell me about it.  Or better yet, show me with a photo on twitter or facebook.
