The smitten/ love-at-first- sight /head-over-heels fan
Mostly comprised of females and the third gender, these are the types who instantly become fans because of a good-looking player. It’s pretty easy to spot them, for you can only hear them cheer like mad whenever a heartthrob player scores.
It does not even require one to know anything about the sport or to be a student from the school the said heartthrob plays for—all it takes is for one to have a crush on a player and that’s it, voila! Instant fan!
Despite being swept off their feet whenever their crush makes an appearance, they usually learn more and get to love the whole team and the sport itself as time goes by.
Favorite line: “I love youuuu (insert good-looking player’s name here, over and over)!!!”
