Cool Story: I was walking through Hobby Lobby when my son was 5, and he pointed to a picture and said “I don’t like that team”—it was a picture of the Oklahoma City Thunder—we don’t watch the NBA, but we are diehard Arkansas Razorback fans. He was trained to hate our geographic rivals—Texas and Oklahoma. It was a proud moment for me and a definite parent win!
Flash forward to today, he’s 13 and is on his way to his first NBA game with his best friend, who is a Chiefs/Thunder fan. He decided to cheer for whatever team they’re playing because we don’t care for Oklahoma anything and he hates the chiefs as much as I do. Low and behold the team he is now pulling for is none other than the Denver Nuggets! All week we have been researching everything about them, and I bought him his own subscription so he can listen to the DNVR Nuggets pod cast. It looks like we will officially be Broncos and Nuggets fans now, and I am proud to say—you got both of us!
Does this make us bandwagon fans, because the Nuggets are pretty good now that we are jumping on the bandwagon? I feel like fate has willed us to be Denver everything fans!
