I know plenty of people who would allow themselves to get dragged to a basketball game but also not have the interest to remain engaged for a full 48 minutes – or even five minutes.
So, I wasn’t surprised CSN Philadelphia cameras caught a fan knitting during the 76ers-Pistons game Wednesday.
But when she was shown in a Detroit jersey, I was taken aback.
Who both cares enough about basketball to wear a jersey and so little they’d spend the game knitting?
CSN did a little sleuthing, and the answer makes sense. This fan is so devoted to the Pistons, she went to the game even though she had knitting to get done. She could’ve just stayed home to knit and saved herself strange glances from other fans. Free of distraction she probably would’ve finished more quickly, too. Instead, she went to The Palace to cheer on her team (while still handling her knitting duties).
