GQ Calls Red Sox Fans ‘Insufferable Hypocrites,’ Sixth-Worst Fan Base in Major Sports

GQ Calls Red Sox Fans 'Insufferable Hypocrites,' Sixth-Worst Fan Base in Major SportsRed Sox followers have been called many things, but is “bad fans” a fair title?

On Friday, GQ released its Worst Sports Fans in America list, and Red Sox fans are among the chosen 15.

According to the magazine, Red Sox fans are “insufferable hypocrites” and rank as the sixth-worst fans in sports, ahead of fans of the New York Yankees (No. 9), Montreal Canadiens (11), Los Angeles Lakers (15) and Dallas Cowboys (12), to name a few.

The worst fans, according to GQ, hail from Philadelphia. Eagles fans rank No. 2, and Phillies fans are No. 1.

GQ explains that “winning the 2004 World Series was the worst thing to ever happen to Red Sox fans,” and that Red Sox fans “are indistinguishable from Yankees fans — just with more grating accents.”

If that’s not enough to rile up the Nation, this might:

“Having been beaten into a state of lovable-loserdom by generations of championship futility, they now seem intent on living out some sort of horsehided cycle of domestic violence, inflicting upon us everything that for eighty-six years was inflicted upon them.”
