Dodgers Fan Gives Lesson In Fandom During Fifth-Grade Graduation Speech

We don't have much background info to go with this video, but it looks like young Casey was asked to share his favorite memory from the past year during his fifth-grade graduation ceremony. Casey flips the script, though, and chooses to talk about his least-favorite memory: the day the Giants won the World Series.

Casey talks about how he went to school the next day in his Dodgers gear, and endured an entire class of fifth-grade Giants fans chanting "Beat L.A.!" at him. The kid's a true fan.


We want to be proud of Casey for being a good fan and taking his lumps, but we also can't help but worry about what his future holds. It's easy stand behind a shitty team when you're young and the future looks bright, but things only ever get worse for diehard sports fans as they age. You think these guys never regret the fact that they still cheer for the Maple Leafs?
