If you turn on a dime, saying things like, "Well, I'm not really a fan" then your a bandwagoner.

That's a good one.

Here's something that happened to me at work. When the Eagles were going to the Super Bowl 2 years ago my supervisor said everyone could wear their Eagles shirts to work for the week leading up to the SB. She knows that I hate wearing the company shirt. She even offered up an Eagles shirt for me to wear instead of the company uniform shirt.

I told her that I would probably die if that Eagels shirt touched my body. Then I slipped on my uniform shirt over top my Steelers shirt and went to work.

This past year though, the friday before SB XL, I mysteriously misplaced all of my uniform shirts and worked the day in my Ben Roethlisberger jersey. She gave me some grief, but not much. She couldn't not after the previous year. LOL!
