Things have been going so well even Dejan had to switch it up in his writing to keep his 'Yinzer' readership up as the bandwagon is starting to fill up...

To me there is honor in sticking with your team through thick and thin, as nearly all of us have done. Not so much honor in being a bandwagon jumper.

I know a lot of Penguins fans would stop paying attention if the Pens had a couple of losing seasons in a row.

That being said, I welcome any and all bandwagon jumping Pirate fans. They will help finance the next wave of contract extensions for people like Alvarez and Walker.

Especially the one that starts with "R" and ends with "N".

You said it Ralphie. I used to ask all of those "life-long Atlanta Braves fans" that all of a sudden started showing up in the mid-90s if they could name five players other than Aaron or Dale Murphy, even offered to buy them a beer. Never bought a drink for any of them and one or two even tried to start fights when I pressed them further.

Sometime in the 2000s, I asked my high schoolers, hey how many of you are still life long Bulls fans, now that #23 has retired? Bet you were all wearing those jerseys in elementary school.
