How much do you need to know about a team to wear their gear?

We talked about this on the air yesterday.  I asked the question, “how much do you need to know about a team to wear their gear?”  One guy called in and said that he’s a 49ers fan and knows a lot about them.  He went on to explain that his dad was a big Sharks fan.  He said he wears Sharks gear because he likes the logo and the fact that his dad was a big fan.  He admitted that he can’t name one single player.   I see teams as a way to come together as a community.  I think wearing their gear as a civic pride thing.  I like San Jose, so I wear a San Jose Giants hat.  I know next to nothing about the team.  I wear an Oakland A’s hat because I support Oakland.  I’ve lived there several times and root for The Town.  When I’m at 7-11 and the clerk says, “OMG, what a game last night!”  That’s where I ask, “what happened?”  He explains and I make a new friend.  What do you think?
