No matter what sporting event you're at, hockey, baseball, football, there are always those SUPER hardcore fans or maybe you are one yourself.
Apparently, a LOT of these Super Fans participated in the latest poll that Ticketmaster did because the results are wild. And I must admit I know someone in the radio world who is also known as Jetman, he, of course, dresses the part and even has a license plate the says JETMAN, and leads the crowd in the Jets Chant. FYI the original Jetman was a fellow by the name Fireman Ed.
Ticketmaster conducted a survey on fan behavior at sporting events which you can check out even more of the results at thewrap.com.
They asked 1,000 fans how they thought THEIR behaviors impacted games.
