Oh yeah. That’s different. Where the town has one high school that won state before? That’s gonna be like not going to church. Plus, if you’re a student and don’t support the team then for real **** you. That should be considered unacceptable.

And same with college.

But dude, Penn State is definitely the same.

Well, this really reinforces my original point.

Those fans seem really cool. The opposition fans were being treated really well.

Good on ya - Ireland

Irish fans: best in the world.
True story: fans arrived in Paris I think it was. Loud, happy, bit rowdy but nothing bad. Came across this woman with a flat tyre. Lads all pile out, change the tire and off they go. Welcome from Ireland. That's the way to make your mark when you're on tour.

I don't think there have ever been any instances of Irish fans getting in trouble, getting arrested, anything like that. Nearest thing to anything controversial was one idiot who fell over a plant on national TV. Made him a minor star.

People love the Irish. I remember when my ma was making her first/only/last trip across Europe a short while before she passed away, and she said everyone who met them said "English?" But when she, Karen and my aunt shook their heads and said "Irish" everyone perked up. "OH Irish! Welcome!"

Well I did go to Boston once when I was a kid, surely that counts.

Doubt it, unless you have Irish ancestry. Do you have Irish ancestry?
