sports industry
Professional sports has become one of the most popular industries in the world today. The media spends billions of dollars on advertisements and teams spend millions of dollars on professional athletes all for one reason, the fans. There are three types of fans in the sports world, part-time fans, fanatics, and fair-weather fans. The first type of fan that I mentioned is a fair weather fan. They jump from team to team, most likely to which one is winning. These are the kinds of fans that never really jump on board with one specific team. They cheer for whichever team might be winning at the time. These fans will usually say that they are routing for whoever the sports critics say will win the championship in that specific season. The second type of fan is what I like to call a part-time fan. These fans really do not have a favorite team, or even like sports period. They will watch a game only if there is nothing else on that they would rather watch. They really do not care who wins or loses. Most of the time these fans do not really know much about the sport that they are watching, or know much about sports in general. The third type is fanatics fans. Fans that are fanatics are the ones who are diehard and will put their favorite team before almost all other priorities.Their lives revolve around their favorite team and they will do anything for their team.  If they are not at the game, you can usually find them watching the game somewhere else on TV.
