The makeup is messy and the preseason Summer heat is hard to describe in some NFL cities in August...and the heat makes that face paint uncomfortable. The superfans, though, have that extra bit of desire to make the day, game day, exciting. The Oakland Raiders who are and have been and might be again the Los Angeles Raiders are in the front of our minds when we think of fans who stand out. They get all the notoriety as rebels, but every NFL city has these fun people who have enough chutzpah to dare: they have the audacity to dare to stand out in this buttoned-up Sunday experience. But, do fans, typical fans really think the NFL is a buttoned-up experience to be revered and not adored?
I guess it's buttoned-up because, of course, this is Sunday which is akin to Sinday so watch it you guys, right? I say we should honor these people who rebelled in that most innocent way: by dressing up. It's just their Sunday suit! And, I should note, men are joined by women in this habit: the same folks can be seen again and again dressing up...sometimes they find new outfits that are current to the game and sometimes you find them in that perfect outfit which defines their team and their allegiance.
There is so much fun happening in NFL cities on their own particular game day. Check out these NFL superfans!
