A derisive expression to describe people who act as "sport fans" for a team that know nothing about when, and only when, the "home team" is doing extremely well (in the playoffs and/or championship).

A front runner cannot name more than 3 players on his "team," never attended a game more than 5 months before the current post-season and cannot tell you the last time the team actually won a championship.

"You mean they were this good before?"

Examples of cities with a large amount of these types of people (they are not fans):

Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Montreal, Minneapolis.

Compare this to fans in Boston, Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago where they turn out in lousy weather, no matter what the teams' record.
