Are you a sport fanatic? Then watching the games probably just isn’t enough to keep you satisfied. You want to know more about all your favorite players, and you want to join in conversation with other sport fans.
Whether you love football or golf, here are a few of the best places to learn about your favorite sport stars:
Everyone from LeBron James to Serena Williams has a Twitter account, and many update them quite regularly with tidbits from their personal and professional lives. You can check in on JR Smith and learn about his family or his latest vacation. Or you can follow the Williams’ sisters and get a behind-the-scenes look at their latest fashion show.
Following your favorites on Twitter will feel like you are having a conversation with a pal. You might even get your favorites to talk back with you!
Instagram is another approachable social media format. Stars like Eli Manning and the Williams’ sisters are on Instagram, and they post regularly. The posts are only photos, so they are likely to be more personal in nature.
Since Instagram is a more intimate platform, you are also more likely to get a response back from your favorite sport star if you comment or interact on their profile.
Many forums are available for sports fans to get together and chat about their favorite players, their favorite teams, or the latest news in their sport. You can lurk in the background reading interesting information, or you can become an active participant providing information or arguing over stats.
Depending on the forum, you might even be able to sign up for a fantasy league, get tickets to a game or match, or make new friends.
People often overlook local clubs in our online age. Yet they still exist and are still great way to meet other people who share your interests.
Local fan clubs will give you the same opportunities as participating in online forums, but you will be able to talk to the people in person. The friends you make can become real friends, and you’ll always have someone with whom to watch the latest game or to share news about your favorite players.
Take your fandom to the next level and head to one of these spots to talk about your favorite players and your favorite game. You’ll meet like-minded people, and you’ll stay up-to-date on all the latest happenings.
