All pro sports teams have fans who all of a sudden start sporting their gear after they start winning—AKA a bandwagoner. Unfortunately for the San Francisco Giants, because of their incredible recent success, there are a good amount of those people across Northern California and beyond. So, in an attempt to separate the fair-weather followers from the Orange and Black faithful, I’ve compiled a quiz to find out if you really are a legit Giants fan.
Here are the rules:
1. Do not use other people to help you with the question. Let’s face it: You either know it, or you don’t. Don’t try and beat the system.
2. Do not use the Internet to search for the answers. If you do, automatic disqualification. Remember, Big Brother is watching.
3. No it is not multiple choice. It is a challenge.
4. Do not cheat! We don’t have computer police that are watching your every move. Therefore, be honest with yourself. If you cheat, congratulations—good for you. However, if you take the test honestly, you will know in your heart whether or not you qualify as a diehard fan.
How it’s scored:
0/15–3/15 answered correctly: BANDWAGONER-Stop it! My six-year-old niece answered more correctly than you did. I hate to be rude, but the image you’re giving off can be a bit irritating to the true fans. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
4/15–6/15 answered correctly: ROOKIE-You just started following the Giants. That’s alright, but you have a lot to learn.
7/15–9/15 answered correctly: AVERAGE-Solid fan. Not quite a diehard, but hey, maybe you have a life away from AT&T Park.
10/15–13/15 answered correctly: DIEHARD-You are a true fan and should be proud of the fan you are. Feel free to wear Giants gear wherever you wish, stud. Too legit to quit!
14/15–15/15 answered correctly: CRAZIES/GET A LIFE-Don’t get me wrong, we respect the heck out of your guys, but there are more important things in life. Give yourself a pat on the back, and while you’re at it, get a life!
I will post these qualifications and the answers at the end of the quiz, but you now know the rules and the guidelines. Obey them, Sirs and Madams. May the odds be ever in your favor (except for you bandwagoners…you gonna learn today).
