I went to the Sixers Wizards Game 5 last night. For the first time in over a year there was a full crowd. The place was ROCKIN’.
I must have forgotten how stupid fans are.
Call me a bad fan but I can’t genuinely react in outrage to something that’s blatantly the right call even though it doesn’t benefit my team. I cheer and yell when we score, and I boo when an opposing player is shooting or something, but I can’t suspend my belief as far as many of the other fans.
But that’s only half of the story.
The other side is even more egregious in my mind. With about a minute left in the game, the Sixers are up ~20. The entire crowd bursts into a “FUCK YOU WESTBROOK” chant.
I don’t get it. Am I wrong for NOT wanting to chant that? I have no problem whatsoever with Russell Westbrook. I was happy to boo him at the line or cheer when he messed up, but it just felt… wrong. He sat there with a sort of confused look on his face and put his hands up like “okay…“
It’s always been like this, at least I’m pretty sure it has. But I can’t be the only one who thinks like this.
If thinking like this is wrong, then I have some tickets to upcoming games that I should probably sell. Comment if you want them!!!
