I’m here to ask an excellent question are you a sports fan or a sports fanatic? I looked up both definitions, and the dictionary states for a fan, the meaning is “an enthusiastic devotee or follower of sports or sports team” the meaning of a fanatic is “a person with an extreme enthusiasm or zeal for sports or sports team.” So the difference between a sports fan and a sports fanatic is an excellent line. I consider myself a fanatic, and I will give you my opinion of the fine line that separates a fan and a fanatic.
A sports fan will have a favorite team that they follow when they have the time. The fan will know some facts or history about their favorite team. The fan will try to go and see their favorite team when they have some free time, which fits in their schedule. A sports fanatic eats, sleep and breaths everything about sports.
A sports fanatic will know every single fact or history detail about every sport. They know every rule, every player of a team, and every detail that has to do with that team or sport. A fanatic will try their hardest to go to every game of their favorite team, and if they can’t go to the game, they will have a hand device or smartphone that can access the latest news or updates of the game.
The major necessity for a sports fanatic that doesn’t go to the game is a huge obnoxious movie cinema size flat-screen TV that takes up half of their living room. It must surround sound stereo speakers, so it sounds exactly like sitting in the sports stadium. The furniture in the living room must consist of a large comfortable sofa, with a couple of reclining chairs and footrests. There must be plenty of sitting room for the fanatic to invite all his or her friends over for the “big” game.
The final necessity for a sports fanatic is food. There needs to be plenty of food, so it feels like they are tailgating in their own kitchen. There must be plenty of potato chips, dips, tortilla chips, pizza, hamburgers, and hot dogs, and much more available for the game. The most important is the beverages which consist of a case of beer that would fit in the refrigerator, or they have their own personal little refrigerator that will hold the beers and other beverages.
Sports fanatics will also have a lot more sports team gear and memorabilia than a sports fan. A sports fanatic needs every little sports memorabilia of their favorite sports teams, from the sports team jersey to a little sports team spoon. Unfortunately, the fanatics are also most likely to dress up in hideous sports team gear and have face paint all over them in the stadiums.
