Top 7 Things To Do When You Are A Washington Generals Fan

On the flip side of my earlier post on what not to do if you are a Washington Generals fan... here are 7 things you need to do if you are a Washington Generals fan.

1.) Tell People You Are A Fan - While most people have heard of the Harlem Globetrotters, at least by reputation, you would be surprised how many have not heard of the Washington Generals. Spread the word!

2.) Wear a Washington Generals T-Shirt or Jersey - They even sell them at the games now. You have no excuse.

3.) Refuse to come down to the court if Big Easy or Special K invite you down - Little G will EAT YOU!

4.) Be a graceful loser - Past records would indicate you just might have to exercise it. If you think being a Generals fan is about watching your team win the big one... boy are you in for a shock. Being a Generals fan is about being entertained and appreciating the talent the Generals show. Do that and no matter what the final score says you and the Generals will both leave the arena winners.

5.) Bring a kid - If you don't have kids take a relatives kid. Odds are they will cheer for the Globetrotters yes, but there is nothing like seeing the Washington Generals take on the Harlem Globetrotters through the eyes of a child.

6.) Be respectful - Clap and cheer for the Generals of course, but do it with class. DO NOT start booing the Globetrotters and heckling them with your "clever" remarks. Odds are you are not as funny as you think you are, and even if you are (which you very likely aren't.) the audience came to be entertained by the Generals and Trotters, not by your attempts at clever insults. Show the people around you that Generals fans have class. And for the love of you know who... don't cuss. Part of the magic of a Generals game is that it is a rare night of G rated fun, don't be the idiot who ruins it.

7.) Always remember the most important lesson to be learned from the Washington Generals - It's not whether you win or loose, it's how you play the game. (I know this was on the other list, but it can't be said enough.)
