A 38-year-old man in Southern California is feeling very bewildered after a rollercoaster start to the NFL season.
Lewis Meyer, a Los Angeles native, and admitted front runner fan, says that he is suffering from a feeling of disorientation about which NFL team to pretend to cheer for.
“Usually it is pretty simple.” stated Meyer. “I pick one of the favorites and go buy a t-shirt or two and get real vocal at work about my rooting interest, but this year has been tough. The Cowboys are up and down, the Patriots don’t play any defense, and the Packers look terrible without Aaron Rodgers.”
Is there a temptation to just cheer for one of the teams from his hometown?
“That’s when you know things are crazy.” Meyer countered. “The Rams actually look like they could be a contender, but I haven’t cheered for them since they were the “Greatest Show on Turf”, and when they lost that Super Bowl, it really hurt me. I vowed then and there, that I would not root for them again, unless I really knew they had a chance to win something. I have been a Raiders fan before but they are struggling, and the 49ers are terrible.”
The Chargers seem to be heating up, after winning two games in a row.
“I’m not falling for that again.” he responded. “They have hurt me so many times. It is just a matter of time before they do it again.”
“I had an aunt once who lived in Pennsylvania. Maybe I could pretend to be an Eagles fan until something better comes along.” he continued. “It’s a tough time to be true fan, right now.”
