However as a Veteran Football Fan, I feel that it is MY duty as a good fellow football fan to disclose to the number 1 fun way to get excited about the season. Because lets face it- off season is just no fun and now that NFL is coming to a close we don't even have that to look forward to anymore.
So the BEST way to stay Focused on Football during off-season is:
Smack Talk/ Trash Talk- I prefer smack, sounds classier
refers to inflammatory comments made by a person or team in order to insult, anger, or annoy opponents
Its just part of the game. When it comes to your team, nothing is greater than some good 'ole smack talk. Its part of that rivilry thing.
Number 1 rule is to NEVER, NEVER, under ANY circumstance, no matter HOW much you want to throw something in a fellow smack-talkers face, no matter what, you can never, ever give away any vital information to the enemy. You may think that is obvious but its been done, don't do it. Don't do it. GIVE nothing away. Protect your team no matter how tempted you are. if you win- you have that much more to smack about.
Rule #2 NEVER quote the coach. You may make a mistake and then you have misquoted the coach. That's never good. He won't like it
Be smug and cocky- you aren't the coach- you can get away with it- be that cocky son of a gun that you dispise and be as sarcastic and as demeaning (respectfully) that you can be.
BUT ONLY follow this Rule, if you are absolutely 100% CERTAIN that your team will win the game. You don't want to look like a chump.
Protect your team and take up for them whenever possible. You are going to belittle other teams, so of course- they will do this to you, so take up for your team- that's what a TRUE fan is all about. DON'T be fair-weathered if you lose, stick with your team and be a good loser- this is important so that you will be a RESPECTED SMACK TALKER
Where can you smack talk?
Well, preferably not in the stands- you need to smack talk to opposing smack talkers.
I like to go to the following websites to smack talk- and I from Wichita Falls, look up smack talk and a map of the Falls will show up and you will see a large Raider and a Coyote.
I was born a SMACK TALKER- ask anyone, I am good at it-
(although, word of caution, DO NOT try to smack talk in Spanish or you MIGHT just call someone a "Noun". Hate to make fun of myself, so I will lay that one on Lisa Pelt)
Oh yeah, the places I go to smack talk are:
http://www.5atexasfootball.com/ (bet you'll NEVER guess who I am on that site)
click forums, then click rest of the best 4a and below- you have to have a user name to smack talk or ask questions or post comments
There are many others and throughout the next week, I will create a column to the right of all the great websites for you to go to. Now that we are Varsity, we have a LOT more options of places to go to read information about our teams and don't forget- we will be on High School Extra!!!
