Rules for New York Sports Fans
by Joe Benigno with Jordan Raanan

 

You've cheered for your team since you were a kid - even during those lean years. You wouldn't even consider missing a playoff game. You couldn't possibly root for your fantasy team's players if it meant rooting against your own true-life team. And you'd never, ever bet against your own team. To many, the rules of being a New York sports fan are more than acknowledged, they're ingrained.

 

But now, in Rules for New York Sports Fans, WFAN's Joe Benigno and coautor Jordan Raanan enumerate them all for the first time. They have collected all the things that New York fans need to know, a code of conduct so that we can all live a civilized life. For the most part New York sports fans do it right. For many it's an innate sensibility and just a little refinment is needed. That's where Rules for New York Sports Fans comes into play.

 

Some of the most vital rules include:

 

• # 1 - The Golden Rule: Only one team per sport
• # 18 - Attend at least one game each season
• # 23 - Never do the wave, Macarena, or chicken dance
• # 36 - Don't sell tickets to rival fans
• # 48 - Don't blame losses on the officials

 

Rules for New York Sports Fans is a hilarious look at a singular sports town that's sure to inform and amuse readers.
