Anyways I bring you Wichita By E.B’s 8 Rules For How To Be A Shocker Fan in a Bar:
If you’re going to support the Shockers, don’t go in the bar wearing a KU or K-State shirt. You lose all credibility.
Learn to pronounce the players’ names right. People will just look at you and laugh if you say Garrett Stutz’ name as Garrett Stoootz. Stootz just sounds Canadian which he’s not.
Do not act like each bucket was the act of god. Some gentleman last night was whistling as loud as he could after nearly every bucket. Dude…..”Act like you have been there.”
If you go to a bar and they turn the sound off and switch it to a KU or K-State game, let the employees know. Or better yet, boycott that bar for WSU games.
Don’t make fun of the other team’s student section when you’re one of the 30-40 year olds that sit in the front row of the student section for our home games.
You are not a commentator. It’s ok to talk amongst friends and make comments here and there but don’t be that guy who analyzes EVERY SINGLE PLAY with “he should have done this” or “he sucks, coach needs to take him out” or “don’t ever pass him the ball”. Let me repeat, on EVERY SINGLE PLAY!
If we beat a team who beat another team, don’t assume we’re automatically better than said team and brag about it. Just because UNLV beat North Carolina and Davidson beat KU, doesn’t mean Wichita State is automatically better than North Carolina and KU. Remember Missouri State beat Creighton, that doesn’t make them better than us since we beat Missouri St.
Remember personal hygiene. We don’t want to be known as the “stinky fans” now do we?
Any of you have rules to add to this blog?
Otherwise, who else is looking forward to the MVC Tournament and March Madness? This truly has all the makings of a magical year. We just have to keep playing at the high level we are at. Gregg Marshall has done a fantastic job. And like all of you, I too am loving every second of it.
