not so much “Home Team”

The other day I was watching the NC State VS. South Carolina football game at Home Team in Richmond, VA with a few guys after work. The rest of the people there appeared to be NC State fans with some kind of Richmond chapter of the Wolf pack Club. The game was pretty uneventful and rather boring, but the NC State fans clearly thought otherwise and cheered for every yard they gained like they had scored a touchdown. I’m a native of Raleigh, NC and am very familiar with how obnoxious their fans can be, as well as how much love for the team they have despite their mediocrity.

Waiting for a table, we stood around in a sea of red and white and felt a little out of place. Finally after a couple PBR’s, a booth opened up and we sat down near a couple of NC State fans. To our dismay, these two were especially loud and annoying. Every other minute they jumped out of their seats and yelled out one of their cheers while throwing up their Wolf Pack hand gesture, (which looks more like a llama than a wolf, refer to the picture below).


By now we had grown tired of this game and had shifted our attention to the Eagles game where Vick had just rushed for a TD. However, it wasn’t long until another outburst of obnoxious NC State fan cheering let out, when we looked over to see NC State making a drive for the end zone to tie the game.  Alas, again to everyone’s disappointment, play by play, they failed to make any completions.

On 4th and long they made their final attempt for a touchdown when the USC defense batted down the ball while emasculating the receiver. As the ball fell to the turf and the state fans quickly realized the game was over, everyone at my table pointed to a different fan and yelled out …nah you good! The State fans didn’t respond and stared at the screen with looks of disappointment and dazed on their faces. The referee crossed his arms in a violent fury signaling incomplete and the game clock soon expired.
