How To Make Friends…Or Enemies Through Fandom

Oh, interpersonal communication. Did you know the more similar others are to ourselves, the more likely we are to like them? A lot of it has to do with uncertainty reduction theory. Take for instance, sports. If someone else is wearing apparel that has the logo of the team you like, you are more likely to have a positive impression of them and welcome them into your space. This story is a perfect example. Sometimes a shirt or hat isn’t enough though, because behavior matters. But what is the point of this incessant blabbering, you may ask? Well, it leads to the title of the post.

When a die-hard fan of any football team attends a game, everyone knows (or at least we hope they do) that there are a few unwritten rules about what you should and should not do around your fellow fans. For those of you who don’t know (although you may think you do), read on for some insight.

How to Make Friends at a Game:

1. If people need somewhere to sit and there’s a bit of room, move down on the bench. Yeah it’s a little crowded, but on cold days, it can keep everyone warmer anyway.

2. If you see a fellow fan in need of a poncho, umbrella, gloves, hat or whatever the accessory may be and you happen to have an extra, offer it to them (only to borrow though, of course). Simple gesture, but it goes a long way.

3. Wear proper team gear. Don’t come with any homemade t-shirts or sweatshirts with offensive language. Not everyone is going to be cool with that. Respect others and wear official apparel.

How Not to Make Friends at a Game:

1. Don’t show up with obnoxious, large signs that get in the way of others, or artificial afros that are four feet tall. And for goodness sake, be a good judge about body paint if you feel so inclined to use it.

2. Don’t get outrageously drunk. No one likes being around the drunk dude at the game. Drunken behavior usually includes excessive loudness, rudeness and loss of balance (which can be really annoying if you’re the one getting fallen on). So please, don’t be “that guy”. 

3. Don’t wear opposing team apparel. If you’re a fan of the other team, chances are, you’re better off on the other side of the stadium. Don’t take this advice lightly. Stay on your own side. That’s it.

"Path is pretty in the same designy way as our modern museums. They are shaped like battleships and grain silos and crumpled souffles. There is much said about flow and fatigue and how one of these has been optimized and the other one reduced. These museums are very exciting when they open. You show up and marvel along with all of the other fans of architecture. Maybe you return for one of those nights where they stay open late and there is a band and drinking. “A great space,” you think. Maybe one day you’ll be rich and rent out the atrium for a private party. The art doesn’t get talked about so much at these museums. The museum itself is the “social object,” as it were. Eventually the particulars around which the museum was designed fall out of fashion. A fresh crop of architects finds it to be too flashy, or too dull, or to have been guided by faulty principles. There is congestion where there should be flow. Certain rooms are simply exhausting. Maybe it is even an eyesore. This is good for the museum. Now they can really fuck up the place. Fill a room with a thousand cubic feet of lead. Let Matthew Barney dangle from a rope and scribble some shit high on a wall where no one can see it. Or: just let their rooms be dull rooms filled with rousing art. Path is a monument to Path. It is no place to scribble in. I wish it longevity so that it might find shabbiness."

This Zombies, Run app seems pretty neat. I prefer the swooshy swooshy machine at the gym instead of running, but I may give this a try.

This is apparently coming out in 3 days.

In 3 days, I’m going to start to be a total jogging addict, I think

I’ve been beta testing it and I can confirm it’s actually the greatest app ever. Full iOS release date is as specified, Android release this Spring.

It’s so intense, at one point during the first mission when radio contact was lost, I could hear them trying to contact me “Can you hear us?!” and I literally grabbed the mic and shouted, “I CAN HEAR YOU WHAT DO I DO?” even though that’s not how it works.

I’m just glad nobody was near me.

Ooooooo motivation!

oh wow this sounds good o_o

though I think we all know in a zombie apocalypse I would be Nick Frost’s character in Shaun Of The Dead

oooooooh
