To Boo or Not to Boo? The Psyche of a Fan

booing1

We’re all guilty of it. We have all been at a game and booed the opposing team, or booed a player who left our team and has just returned for the first time in an opponent’s jersey. We boo the enemy and applaud our guys, because they are our team, they go to battle for […]
