We are approximately one day away from a slew of rivalry games in college football, so the Wall Street Journal went ahead and created character profiles for fans of rival schools. They did so by having Facebook “pull the most prevalent ‘likes’ among active users who had also ‘liked’ a particular football program.” Predictably, the results are equal parts sad and funny, but it should also be noted that these data findings were obviously taken with a grain of salt, considering the ages of those “liking” a particular college football program and some awful television show can range anywhere from age 13 to 103. Nonetheless, this all feels pretty damn fitting.
The accompanying graphic in the piece came equipped with humor sprinkled throughout, offering many directions to point and laugh — SpongeBob Squarepants? Little Fockers? Soulja Boy? — but Alabama fans sure seem to be the most consistently awful of the bunch. The incomparable trio of “The Expendables” as a favorable film, Jet Li as a beloved actor, and “Deal Or No Deal” as must-see TV simply cannot not be trounced. Throw in Hank Williams Jr. and a 7-Up, and I believe we have our “winner” by considerable strides.
Oklahoma fans listing Kirk Cameron as an actor is just downright adorable. If you happen to run into a fan of the Sooners, be sure to pinch their cheek and tussle their hair.
