The National Football League has been the most popular sport in the United States of America for at least the last decade. And as spectators, hardcore enthusiasts, and analysts, we've all been able to witness the sport's fandom that has been tied to the sport and each of its 32 franchises.
Every year during the winter months of the year, fans from cities across the country pile themselves into stadiums to cheer on and root for their favorite teams. Some people even attend games just to watch their rival teams fall from grace. But what about football's most famous and publicly-known fans? Are they in stands participating in the weekly debauchery of football fandom or they playing it cool on the team's sideline?
With the 53rd Super Bowl officially upon us in the coming weeks, we here would like to take the time to recognize all 32 teams' most prominent and famous celebrity fans across the country, some of which might surprise you. Without further ado, check them out for yourself below.
1. Arizona Cardinals - Blake Shelton
At one point in time, John McCain would have been considered the most notable Arizona Cardinals fan in all of the land. Unfortunately, McCain passed away in his hometown of Cornville, AZ in August of last year so, those honors have since then been passed to country singer/songwriter, Blake Shelton. The seven-time Grammy-nominated country artist isn't afraid of the big stage himself as he's faced a multitude of didn't adversities throughout his music career. However, he has come out on top as a multi-platinum selling musician and the soon to be spouse of the ever-so-beautiful Gwen Stefani who just so happens to be a musician herself.
Unfortunately, for Shelton's Arizona Cardinals, the football organization performed the worst out of all 32 teams with a record of 3 wins and 13 losses but, luckily, will be granted the first pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. And despite his team's dismal performance, it didn't stop Shelton from showing up to team practices, attending games, and even receiving his own jersey from the franchise's executives. It takes guts to hold your team down through tough times but, Blake Shelton is loyal and it shows.
2. Atlanta Falcons - Samuel. L Jackson
It's got to be a lot of pressure to be on that Atlanta Falcons roster and perform while one of the most famous actors of all time is cheering you on from the sidelines. That's right, Samuel L. Jackson is a die-hard Atlanta Falcons fan and isn't afraid to show it. Despite being born in Washington DC, Samuel L. Jackson most likely found his love for the Falcons while attending Morehouse College in Georgia as a youth.
Also, it's hard to believe that someone with the work ethic and who's been in at least 125 movies (and counting) would even have time to participate in anything as trivial as sports fandom but, yet, Sam Jack has proven that he's capable of even being present for his team when the season is in full effect. However, we can only imagine Samuel L. Jackson staring at his television screen in disgust a la his Pulp Fiction after the team's Super Bowl loss in 2017 against the New England Patriots.
3. Baltimore Ravens - Michael Phelps
Baltimore is known for several things, their delicious crabs, being the birthplace and headquarters for Under Armour, the Baltimore Ravens, and none other their most famous patron ever, Michael Phelps who just so happens to be the city's most notorious Ravens fan. It's a perplexing thought to break down that the world's greatest competitive swimmer of all time is actually a fan of other athletes and teams who will never be able to accomplish what he has. If you've been living under a rock, Michael Phelps holds the world record for the most Olympic gold medals held by an individual with a total of 28 medals.
Unfortunately, Phelps' Ravens are in a transitional period as it looks like they're rallying around their newest acquisition at quarterback in Lamar Jackson but couldn't make it past the first round this year's NFL Playoffs. The future's bright for the franchise but, they'll have to wait sometime before hoisting their next championship banner into the raptors.
4. Buffalo Bills - Wolf Blitzer
For some reason, Wolf Blitzer being a fan of the Buffalo Bills totally makes sense. Blitzer is an American staple in United States journalism so much to the point that he's been featured in a wide array of different films as the dramatic newscaster who verifies that the world is coming to an end. But just as Blitzer is a staple in the realm of journalism, so are the Buffalo Bills in regards to the team's old school style of play. The Bills have stayed true to their identity of establishing a solid running game and concrete defense. Unfortunately, the Bills haven't had a single playoff victory in 23 seasons.
Yet, it's still dope to see Wolf Blitzer hold his team down in the public eye despite the team's irrelevancy in the league. And honestly, we think Wolf Blitzer will be watching his Buffalo Bills succeed in the talent-heavy NFL sooner rather than later.
5. Carolina Panthers - Steph Curry
Steph Curry is already an anomaly in his own right as he's earned his right to be considered one of the greatest NBA shooters of all time. His uncanny ability to find even the tiniest pockets of space against defenders to get a shot off with his precision is unlike anything spectators have ever witnessed on the professional hardwood but yet, Steph takes his success with stride and humbleness. He also happens to be a fan of pretty decently successful football franchise too in the Carolina Panthers.
Whenever Steph has the opportunity he can be seen on the sidelines of the Bank of America Stadium beating the Panthers' pregame drum, getting fans involved, and cheering from the sideline. He's also become pretty close with some of the Panthers' roster as he's been known for having one of the best and most upbeat personalities in all of sports.
6. Chicago Bears - Barack Obama
The Chicago Bears are one of the most recognizable football organizations in all of sports so, it's only right that their biggest celebrity fan is the most popular and recognizable guy on the face of the earth in Barack Obama. Say what you want about his political career, there isn't a soul alive who doesn't know who Barack Obama is. With Berry O being a Chicago native, it makes sense that he would fall into the category of being a Bears fan and he's definitely expressed his fandom for the notorious franchise for the masses to either embrace or loathe.
As a youth, Barack Obama was able to witness what is arguably the greatest football team ever assembled in the '85 Chicago Bears win Super Bowl XX. And he might be able to watch the franchise scoop up another Lombardi Trophy in the near future if the team continues to get better as they made a semi-decent run in this year's NFL Playoffs.
7. Cincinnati Bengals - Nick Lachey
We're sorry Bengals fans but having a former boy band frontman as your team's most famous fan doesn't exactly provide you with street cred or the toughness you'd hope for. For those of you unaware of who Nick Lachey is, he is the former lead singer of the multi-platinum '90-00s boy band 98 Degrees. The collective peaked in the early 2000s before disbanding in 2002 but recently has come back together to tour for nostalgic fans.
But despite our jabs at Nick Lachey being soft for his boy band past, he's been in a few scuffles holding down his Cincinnati Bengal counterparts. Back in 2012, Nick Lachey was removed from a Chargers/Bengals game after a Chargers fan continuously stuck his finger in the pop singer's face. He took to Twitter to cheer on his Bengals brethren following the debacle and ever since then has been leading the celebrity charge for the team.
8. Cleveland Browns - Brad Paisley
Brad Paisley is one of the most decorated country music artists of this generation and he's still one of the most impactful. Paisley has sold over a total of eleven million records making him a diamond status recording artist. He's also acquired a total of three Grammy Awards, 14 Country Music Association Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, and two American Music Awards. Unfortunately, the same amount of accolades Paisley has accomplished cannot be said the same for his favorite football franchise in the Cleveland Browns.
The Cleveland Browns have been an atrocious team to follow for decades now but, yet the organization has been able to hold to thousands of loyal fans throughout the years including their most famous celebrity fan in Brad Paisley. This season, the Browns showed signs of improvement ending their season with a record of 7-8-1. Which isn't saying much being that the Cleveland Browns ended the 2017-18 season with a record of 0-16. Hopefully, some more of Brad Paisley's success rubs off on the team moving forward.
9. Dallas Cowboys - Lebron James
With Lebron James being at the top of his game in his respective sport, it's mind-boggling to see him cheering others along in their own athletic departments. Especially in the realm of professional football where it is possible he has the size and speed to be an elite contributor to a team. However, Lebron watches from the sidelines as a fan of the notorious Dallas Cowboys or as some fans would call them, "God's team."
With the Cowboys being so popular amongst casual football fans and celebrity personalities, we thought it would have been difficult to pick just one celebrity to represent the team but, it's safe to say that the best basketball player on the planet (at the moment) is a suitable representative for such honors. Unfortunately, just like the Cowboys, Lebron finds himself at the cusp of championship greatness but just can't get over the hill. Maybe in the near future, we'll see both Lebron and the Dallas Cowboys holding up some new championship bling. Only time will tell.
10. Denver Broncos - Kate Hudson
Finally, the first woman to make the celebrity die-hard football list is not only a member of the Hollywood elite but, she's also one of the most beautiful women in the limelight. Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, Kate Hudson is the world's most notable Denver Broncos fan in all of the land.
You'd think that some who's starred in movies like You, Me, and Dupree or Bride Wars wouldn't be immersed in the realm of such a brutal sport as pro football but, Kate Hudson is. Hudson can often be seen in plenty of paparazzi photos sporting her famed orange Broncos skully with pride. Also, the Broncos are a franchise that used to obtaining elite quarterbacks and gathering championships at will with a total of three Lombardi trophies under their belt. Even though the Broncos failed to get into the postseason this year, we have a feeling they'll be back in the playoffs sooner rather than later.
11. Detroit Lions - Eminem
Eminem is the entertainment industry's ghost. The multi-platinum recording artist is rarely ever seen in public, let alone any type of sporting events yet, he finds time to be present at Detroit Lion home games every football season. Unfortunately, the Lions are one of those organizations that have the ability to acquire superstar talent but can never make it over the cusp to find themselves in the playoff picture or deep in the postseason.
With Eminem being Detroit's hometown hero, he definitely hasn't abandoned the Lions despite their turbulent history. Matter of fact, Eminem did the team's honor of performing the Lions' season-opener coin toss this past September. Of course, Marshall Mathers was met with a warm reception by those in attendance and was highly-favored by the Lions players on the sideline as Em stayed to watch the game. Unfortunately, the New York Jets thrashed the Lions 48-17 to begin the season.
12. Green Bay Packers - Lil Wayne
The Green Bay Packers is another one of those classic football franchises that have achieved a lot since their conception. The Packers have a total of four Super Bowl victories to brag about as well as one of the most consistent quarterback drafting records to date. However, the team does have a rather unlikely die-hard celebrity fan in Lil Wayne.
Lil Wayne's Packer fandom might be a surprise to many being that Wayne has notoriously represented his hometown of New Orleans not only in his music but has the city permanently tattooed on several parts of his body. Strangely, Wayne became a Packers fan after his father attended the 1997 Super Bowl game between the Packers and the New England Patriots. Ultimately, the Packers won their third championship at that time and Wayne's father returned home with a ton of memorabilia which sparked the talented rapper's interest in the team. Also, don't sleep on Weezy's sports knowledge too. There's a reason he's a recurring guest on ESPN.
13. Houston Texans - The Bush Family
The Houston Texans are still a fairly new NFL franchise after the original Houston Oilers moved to Tennessee where they became the Titans in 1997. Houston was left without a professional football team until 2002 when the Texans were officially conceived and added to the league. Yet, the Houston Texans do have one of the most famous families in the entire world as true supporters of their organization in the Bush family.
With the recent passings of former United States of America President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara Bush, we've witnessed the loss of the eldest generation of the notorious Bush family. Both of which were devoted Houston Texans fans. Fortunately, George W., Jed, Pauline, Dorothy, and the remainder of the Bush family are holding on to the tradition of celebrating their favorite football franchise every time they get the chance. You might not agree with the family's politics but they deserve the honor of being the Texans most notable fans today.
14. Indianapolis Colts - David Letterman
David Letterman is one of the greatest late night television hosts of all time. His charisma, charm, communication skills have allowed him to garner millions of followers and admirers including some of the toughest athletes on the face of the planet. Some of which just so happen to be members of his favorite football team in the Indianapolis Colts. Throughout his illustrious career, David Letterman has been able to interview former Colts' Hall-of-Fame quarterback, Peyton Manning as well as forming a friendship current starting quarterback Andrew Luck.
Even though Letterman has officially gracefully bowed out of the late-night television circuit, it's still somewhat rare to catch the comedian on the sidelines at a Colts game. That still didn't stop the longest-serving late night TV host in American history from being invited to roast Peyton Manning at his statue unveiling in Indiana. Hopefully, we'll see more of Letterman supporting his boys in blue in the near future.
15. Jacksonville Jaguars - Bill Murray
The Jacksonville Jaguars is another one of those franchises that have an amazing support system in regards to loyal fans. The Jaguars have never tasted the glory of lifting the Lombardi trophy over their heads in victory but, are compiling the tools to become a serious playoff contender with their impressive defensive force. Unfortunately, the team missed the playoffs this year but will be back with a vengeance next year and they'll be back with the support of their legendary most famous supporter in Bill Murray.
There's only so many accolades and iconic performances Bill Murray is responsible for so we'll save that for another day. However, Murray has made it a habit to invite some of the Jaguars' elite talent to his annual Murray Bros. Caddyshack Charity Golf Tournament. Murray also pops up at the team's practice facility from time to time to motivate Jacksonville's best.
16. Kansas City Chiefs - Paul Rudd
Paul Rudd has had quite the interesting journey as an actor. Originally born in New Jersey, Rudd studied theatre at the University of Kansas. Since then, he's gone on to star in cult-classic comedies such as Anchorman, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and Knocked Up, only to become a member of the Marvel Universe and become known as Scott Lang also known as Ant-Man. And who would have thought that Ant-Man would be the Kansas City Chiefs most recognizable celebrity fan?
The Kansas City Chiefs, the Missouri-based football club had the opportunity to go to the Super Bowl this year led by the 23-year-old Patrick Mahomes II. But unfortunately wasn't able to get past the elite playoff-experienced Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Despite suffering from a crushing overtime loss, we can definitely expect to see Paul Rudd representing for his Chiefs to make another deep playoff run next season.
17. Los Angeles Chargers - Phil Mickelson
The legendary Phil Mickelson also known as 'Lefty' is one of the greatest golfers to ever play the game. Mickelson has been able to win a total of 43 PGA Tour events including five major championships; three Masters titles, a PGA Championship, and an Open Championship. Phil recently beat another legendary golfer in a one-on-one showdown against Tiger Woods. Also, it just so happens he has good taste in football teams as well as he's the Los Angeles Chargers' most famous celebrity fan.
We know... The Chargers have never won a Super Bowl in their history but they appear to have the tools to win it all year in and year out, led by the fiery Philip Rivers. The Chargers were on the verge of making an appearance in this year's AFC Championship game but fell to the likes of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots who are recurring AFC Championship game material. One day the Chargers will make it over the hump and we're sure Phil Mickelson will be there to root them on.
18. Los Angeles Rams - YG
The Los Angeles Rams have become a favorite to win it will with their beastly defensive line and killer corner combination of Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib. Not to mention, Pro Bowl running back Todd Gurley II controlling things on the offensive side of the ball. But when it comes to the newly acquired Los Angeles fanbase of the recently relocated Rams, we've seen tons of celebrities make their way into the Los Angeles Coliseum to watch the team dominate their competition. But there is one celebrity that stands above the rest... None other than Compton-bred rapper YG.
YG probably has the NFL season's best celebrity cameo after the Rams scored a running touchdown and handed the "Big Bank" rapper the game-winning ball. Also, YG has gotten pretty close with Rams running back Todd Gurley after he gifted the athlete a diamond-encrusted '4Hunnid' chain after a team win. With the Rams making it to the Super Bowl, we should probably expect to see the gangsta rapper in attendance next month.
19. Miami Dolphins - Darius Rucker
Being the first black guy to hit the number one spot on the Hot Country Songs charts since 1983 is an accomplishment in itself. The realm of country music wouldn't even let Beyonce enter the genre without backlash. Think about it... Darius Rucker, formerly of Hootie and the Blowfish is the Miami Dolphins celebrity gem. Rucker has performed at a multitude of different games and is often seen on the sidelines rooting for the South Floridian football squad.
Unfortunately, the Dolphins have struggled to find stability in some of the major player positions on the field. The Dolphins ended the regular season with a record of 7-9 and couldn't clinch a playoff berth in a tough AFC conference. It might be a good thing the franchise let go of now former head coach Adam Gase, especially following his awkward New York Jets head coach introductory press conference. Gase looked like he snorted half of Miami's cocaine supply before heading up north. Hopefully, the Dolphins get things together so Darius Rucker has a reason to create some celebratory tunes.
20. Minnesota Vikings - Nick Swardson
Nick Swardson played one of the most hilarious homosexual criminals of all-time as a recurring character on Comedy Central's Reno 911 as Terry. Swardson has also been in some cult-classic films himself such as Grandma's Boy, where he is also listed as a writer, as well as Malibu's Most Wanted, Click, Blades of Glory, and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Most of us probably wouldn't have thought of the actor as a die-hard sports fan but, he is and just so happens to be a life-long fan of the Minnesota Vikings.
The Vikings are another franchise on the cusp of being dominant in the NFL even though they amongst some of the deepest competition in the NFC North alongside the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears. The Vikings finished their season 8-7-1 and have to return to the drawing board before they can make the comedian/actor Nick Swardson a happy supporter again.
21. New England Patriots - Mark Walhberg
Mark Wahlberg is easily one of the most recognizable faces and famous people walking this planet. There isn't a movie role he can't lock in and his Walhburger fast food franchise officially has reached a total of 26 locations. Mark Wahlberg is truly living the American dream, he's a winner and he only supports winners which is why he's known as the New England Patriots top-ranking celebrity fan. Marky Mark might reside in Los Angeles, California but his heart remains in his hometown of Boston, Massachusetts and it shows in regards to the sports franchises he's a fan of.
Strangely, Mark is a partial owner of sports franchise of his own. Unfortunately, the team isn't based in his hometown of Boston but rather in the Caribbean. Mark Wahlberg owns a cricket franchise by the name of the Barbados Tridents. We're not sure if they're any good but, we do know that the Patriots are going to their third straight Super Bowl after taking out the Chiefs this past weekend. Both Tom Brady and Mark Wahlberg are beasts at what they do so, it only makes sense the two are friends as well.
22. New Orleans Saints - Brad Pitt
If anyone were to choose to live their life in the public eye, they'd probably hope for the popularity and success of this guy, Brad Pitt. There isn't a woman he can't have and guys want to him. Plus, he's actually pretty good at what he does on the silver screen. The guy definitely has range when it comes to acting. From his Nazi scalp-peeling role as Aldo Raine in Inglorious Basterds to his flamboyant persona as Chad Feldheimer in Burn After Reading, Brad can execute his roles and he looks like he's having fun as a thespian. Brad might not have been too happy about some blown calls by the refs as the Rams skated past the Saints to make it to Super Bowl LIII over the weekend.
That's right, Brad Pitt is a superfan of the New Orleans Saints and he's even become comrades with Saints' quarterback, Drew Brees, who is a legend in his own right. Pitt and his ethnically diverse children have become fixtures on the sidelines at the Superdome. Brad Pitt might originally be from Oklahoma but New Orleans has graciously accepted him and his family as one of their own.
23. New York Giants - Lady Gaga
The New York Giants is another football organization that is pretty difficult to determine who's their most famous fan. There's a lot of star power in the Big Apple so it was a tough pick between the star of the Harry Potter movie franchise Daniel Radcliffe and none other the pop-singer/songwriter turned actress Lady Gaga. With the lack of women present, how could we say no to the sultry singing voice and extremely beautiful Lady Gaga?
We're not sure if the "Shallow" singer knows how to break down a 4-3 defense but we do know if the Giants are playing a home game, she's there with her crew and they're getting blitzed themselves. Somehow, this picture of Gaga spilling champagne in MetLife Stadium has become a staple of her personal sports fandom. With the Giants (5-11) looking to catch their footing after having a rather dismal season, Gaga and her friends might have to consider partying elsewhere if the Giants continue their losing ways.
24. New York Jets - Adam Sandler
It's got to be rough being a Jets fan in New York. The majority of the city favors the New York Giants while the New York Jets are treated like the red-headed stepchild of the football scene in the metropolitan city. However, the Jets franchise does have the support of a megastar in funnyman Adam Sandler. Adam Sandler is responsible for curating his very own cinema powerhouse in his production company called Happy Madison Productions. We're all aware of his work in The Water Boy, Happy Gilmore, and Anger Management and now he's locked into a Netflix deal worth tens of millions of dollars.
In regards to Sandler's fandom for the Jets, he's always been open about his love for the team. In the movie Big Daddy, Sandler wears a multitude of different Jets t-shirts and jerseys throughout the film. Not to mention, the famed scriptwriter has also become a regular staple on the sidelines of Jets home games to cheer on his team. Unfortunately, the Jets haven't tasted a Super Bowl victory since 1968. Adam Sandler was two-years-old when the Jets won it all. Who knows if he'll ever get to witness his favorite football franchise do that again.
25. Oakland Raiders
The Oakland Raiders already have one of the most loyal fanbases in all of football. During football season Raiders' stadium is always a packed house and every away game, a small Black Hole of fans can be spotted in their opposition's arena. But, even the boys in black have their own celebrity Raider fan that embodies the culture of the fiery football franchise and there's no bigger fan of the Raiders than Ice Cube. Since the introduction of Ice Cube and N.W.A in the late '80s, Cube has worn his Raiders hat with pride. And to this very day, Cube can be seen representing the Raiders either with his wardrobe or in person on the sidelines.
But with the Raiders preparing for a big move to Las Vegas in 2020, there is a chance that the city of Oakland may be able to retain the team's name forcing the Raiders to totally re-identify themselves. If this were to happen will the Raiders be able to maintain their fanbase? Will Ice Cube still support the team? Only time will tell.
26. Philadelphia Eagles - Bradley Cooper
The entire city of Philadelphia lost its s*** when the Eagles won their very first Super Bowl, last year in 2018. Hell, some people even ate s*** in celebration of their football team's Super Bowl victory. With Philadelphia sports fans being extremely volatile people, you'd think their most famous fan would be too, right? Somehow, that isn't the case as Bradley Cooper is their most notable supporter. Cooper is known for his breakthrough role as Phil Wenneck in The Hangover which opened the door for him to play much more serious roles such as Chris Kyle in American Sniper and Jackson Maine in A Star is Born.
Even though Cooper has a lot on his plate in regards to work life, that hasn't stopped him from attending Eagles games with the rest of the Eagles' obnoxious fanbase. The Eagles were able to clinch a playoff berth late in the season but were eliminated from winning back-to-back Super Bowls by the Saints this past week. Now, with a big decision to make between Nick Foles and Carson Wentz, the future rest in the Eagles' front office hands.
27. Pittsburgh Steelers - Wiz Khalifa
The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently in shambles and it appears as if the team may need to begin the rebuilding process. Their star running back in Le'Veon Bell held out for an entire season in demand of a restructured contract and now, Antonio Brown is claiming he wants out of the Steel City as well. But, even though the Steelers might be imploding right before our eyes, the Pittsburgh football organization has the support of famed rapper and notorious marijuana enthusiast, Wiz Khalifa.
One of Wiz Khalifa's biggest hit songs to date in "Black and Yellow" has become the theme song for the Steelers and Khalifa has performed for fans in Heinz Field countless times. In many ways, Wiz has become an unofficial member of the Steelers roster as he pops in-and-out of town to show support to his hometown football squad. Let's just hope the Steelers get it together again so, they can make it back into the postseason.
28. San Francisco 49ers - Marisa Miller
The Santa Cruz, California born and bred, Marisa Miller grew up watching the San Francisco 49ers with her father during the franchise's most dominant years in the '80s and early '90s. As a child, if you have the luxury of watching your favorite teams win championships, those memories stick with you forever so, it's only right that Marisa Miller is considered the 49ers' most famous fan today. For those of you who don't know who Marisa Miller is, she's most known for her work as a Victoria Secret and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model.
It's got to be a lot of pressure to perform well as a 49er with one of the hottest and famous women in the world in the crowd cheering you on. And unfortunately for the 49ers this year, the team ended their season with a terrible record of 4-12 after losing their star quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo in the third game of the season. However, things are looking for the San Francisco 49ers moving forward, they just have to stay healthy. We're sure Marisa Miller is hoping they maintain their health and rise to prominence in the NFC West.
29. Seattle Seahawks - Macklemore
The Seattle Seahawks are often slept on and their quarterback Russell Wilson is highly under-appreciated by mainstream media as he's led the Seahawks to back to Super Bowls in 2014 and 2015, one of which the Hawks won. Fortunately, the organization does have a solid foundation and fanbase that come to games from all over the Northwest region of the United States. The Seahawks too, have the support of a major celebrity as well in Macklemore.
Macklemore has always repped his hometown of Seattle, Washington and his love for the Seattle Seahawks. The "Thrift Store" rapper and the Seahawks front office have also become pretty close in recent years as Macklemore and his producer, Ryan Lewis, have performed in front of thousands of screaming Seahawks fans numerous times. The Seahawks still have the talent and ability to be elite in today's league they just need a little extra help. Maybe Macklemore can write some more heat to motivate his hometown team.
30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Dick Vitale
Dick Vitale is one of the greatest sports broadcasters of all time. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about his head coaching stint in the NBA. Vitale was the head coach of the '78-79 Detroit Pistons and ended their season with a losing record of 30-52. The following season Vitale began the season 4-8 and was removed from the head coaching position. Luckily, he's found a home as the voice of college basketball and even holds the honor of being the Tampa Bay Buccaneers most famous fan.
Sadly, the Tampa Bay Bucs ended their season in last place of the NFC South division with a record of 5-11. There's a lot of confusion surrounding the team's performance as they're rarely mentioned in the limelight and mainstream media. The Bucs seem to not know whether they'll be moving forward with Jameis Winston or Ryan Fitzpatrick at the starting quarterback position and it's become a major distraction. Maybe they can call on longtime fan, Dick Vitale, for some advice.
31. Tennessee Titans - Tim McGraw & Faith Hill
Somehow, with Tim McGraw being from Louisiana and Faith Hill being from Mississippi, the two were able to agree that they were going to be loyal Tennessee Titan fans. If you want to talk about country music powerhouse couples, look no further than Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. Tim has racked up an insane amount of accolades and awards throughout his 30-year career including three Grammy's and ten American Music Awards. As for Faith Hill, she's sold over 40 million records worldwide and she's even the voice of the NBC Sunday Night Football intro song.
With these two most likely owning a home in Nashville, we can see how they've become fans of the Titans, despite ending their season 9-7. The Tennessee Titans have potential in their young core of quarterback Marcus Mariota and running back Derrick Henry. Give these young bucks a few years together and they will the opportunity to impress a few casual fans. We're sure Tim and Faith will be there to cheer them on.
32. Washington Redskins - Wale
You've got to be a pretty huge fan of a sports team if you invest your money into curating a diamond-encrusted pendant of your favorite sports franchise's logo and that's exactly what Washington DC-native, Wale did. Wale is known for his poetic rapping style but in recent years have shown that he might have a future in sports analysis. After playing football in college and finding his way into the mainstream hip-hop realm, he's been able to formulate close relationships with his favorite Washington DC sports figures. From John Wall to the former Washington Redskin RGIII, Wale's been spotted out and about his professional athlete cronies.
The Washington Redskins ended their season 7-9 after becoming the center of controversy for signing linebacker, Reuben Foster, who was accused of domestic violence and also refusing to sign Colin Kaepernick when the team desperately needed help in the quarterback department. We're not sure what Jay Gruden is thinking but they might want to hire Wale as an advisor and pick his brain.
