Welcome to The Joe Fan Show airing on NBC Sports AM 920 The Game on Wednesdays from 2 pm to 3 pm PDT. Are you fan enough?
Who is Joe Fan? Joe Fan is me. He is you. He is that guy at the bar wearing a football jersey in May. Joe Fan doesn’t show up late or leave in the 7th inning. Joe Fan knows every player on his team’s D-league roster. She can tell you why Tom Brady is the greatest QB that has ever lived — or not. He can give you seven reasons why no-touch icing is a terrible rule. And Joe Fan understood why you never, ever boo’d Derek Jeter.
Most of all, Joe Fan is the manifestation of the little voice inside that tells us we CAN come back from being down 15 in the waning minutes of the 4th quarter. It’s the belief during Spring Training that says all teams are created equal, and “Wait Till Next Year” can instead be “Why Not this Year!”
Fans are the lifeblood of a multi-billion dollar industry, but until right now, until this very moment, they have been marginalized by mainstream media and leagues they support. Sure Joe Fan is expected to buy tickets, merchandise, and support the corporate sponsors. But, at the end of the day, the 24-hour sports conglomerates feel your participation ends right there. Do they offer you a voice in their broadcast? No. Do they show you they value your opinion? No. They think Joe Fan’s participation in the dialogue means having their tweet read or voting in an online poll.
THAT ENDS TODAY!
The Joe Fan Show is a new kind of sports show: Of the fan. By the fan. For the fan. We are the only show brave enough to do what no one else will — give the fan a seat on our panel. At the Joe Fan Show, the fan is an equal partner and full member of the discussion for the entire show. Have you ever wanted to challenge the experts? This is your chance. It’s time to show the sports world you are Fan Enough.
