In response to The Forum's Feb. 6 sports article entitled, "Basketball's heart and soul." This article describes the fans in Hankinson, N.D. and in Lisbon, N.D. as being supportive. It also states that some of their fans go to every home and away game.

From that article, I find that fans are being supportive of their own hometown team. Being a basketball player myself, I know that fans really do help the players. It is always nice to have fans in the gym cheering. I can think of no reason that fans could be bad for any players. I hate to think what it would be like if my parents or any of our other fans did not go to our games. It would be so bad without them. I like to show fans good games.

I think that more fans should go to support their home sports teams. It is a great way to meet new people and to socialize with old friends.
