I can’t remember who coined the phrase “Cheering for Laundry,” but there is a lot of truth to this statement.
It’s why San Francisco Giant fans cheered for Barry Bonds when the rest of America loathed him and everything he represented.
It’s why Los Angeles Laker fans embraced Ron Artest when nobody else wanted to.
We cheer for players not because we like them as people, but because the team name emblazoned across their chest elicits an emotional response from us.
We cheer for laundry.
