The one true thing about us is that we can get chirped by frisbee throwers all day and it will never bother us because we know people try to insult the people who they wish they were. The one thing that will absolutely turn us into a furry, is the people that wear the clothes where they are trying to be us… but have no right to be doing so. Now don’t get this confused with support. If someone is wearing an OU hockey sweatshirt but doesn’t play here that is different. And don’t EVER get someone wearing a bandwagon jersey confused with a throwback, that’s a borderline sin. Lets break this down:
There is a very, specific equation to the most broken rule that I can easily define for everyone real quick. Kid who doesn’t play lacrosse + lax pinnie = Broser. It’s that simple, all that we ask is that you never try to be someone you just aren’t. You will never see myself wearing anything lacrosse because I don’t play. Sure, I know kids on the team and I will go to Pruitt Field to shoot with them, but as soon as I rifle one 30 feet over the net and it goes over the stadium fence and smashes the roof of an OU utility fan… I usually dip out.
This is just the simplest of concepts, don’t wear what you haven’t earned.
And now to discuss bandwagon wearers. This honestly drives us all nuts. Bro’s love where they came from, whether it be from the depths of hell, or from the nicest of communities (I will discuss this is farther detail in a later post). And honestly, one of the worst things we can be called is a bandwagon fan. I’m from Michigan, but both of my parents were raised and went to school in the Pittsburgh area, so I was raised in black and yellow for as long as I can remember. When I get called a bandwagon Pitt fan, I snap.
Anyways, did anyone else notice how many Packers fans there all of a sudden was when they won the Super Bowl this year? Or how about Blackhawks fans after they won the cup? True bros stick to the teams and their cities and are loyal through the best of times, and especially through the worst of times. A true bro from Cleveland still goes to the Indians games months after they have been eliminated from playoff contention. A true bro from Detroit cheers on a 2-12 Lions team as if they are playing in the Super Bowl.
Remember, fashion speaks for itself, and when it comes to sports apparel, if you are a bandwagon fan, you are not a bro, you are not a human, you are the scum of the earth.
BUT, if after the Packers won the Super Bowl you went out and bought a 3rd jersey, yellow, Bart Starr jersey… that is absolutely awesome.
Stay loyal, remember where you came from, where your family came from, and rep those colors until the day that you die.
Bro Hard OU.
