A sports fan as defined in the dictionary is "an enthusiastic devotee or follower of sports." A sports fanatic, as I am, is "a person with an extreme enthusiasm or zeal for sports." The difference between a fan and fanatic is a matter of degree. A fanatic will follow, watch and comment on any and every sport that is on the forefront for the day. Whether you are a sports fan or a rabid fanatic, the enjoyment is the experience of seeing the "big play" or the "once in a life time match up.
