‪50 Pictures of Fans Freaking the Freak Out‬

1 of 51

    Forget the box scores, highlight reels and player reactions. The only way to truly judge the outcome of a game is by reviewing the stadium-wide fan reactions.

    Not their comments or ridiculous poster-board signs, but rather by their open-mouthed gawks, ferocious stares and comical flails. Fan shots are rarely normal, and never subtle.

    There's no scenario in which these passionate fanatics aren't seen erupting like a pot of boiling water.

    These explosive diehards continue to define the world of sports.

    Here are 50 pictures of fans freaking out...hardcore.

    We thank the photographers for catching these epic moments and the fans for having the audacity to produce such breathtaking art.

    Most Neil Peart impressions turn into this.

42. A Nightmare Past

10 of 51

    A juicy Big Mac is the only improvement we see fit.

41. Green and Mean

11 of 51

    The squirmy green creature crawling beside the gargantuan Caucasian makes this shot somehow more uncomfortable.

40. Intermission Mission

    Some fans just can't handle the seventh inning stretch.

39. Philly Pheastin'

36. Unique New York

16 of 51

    This may seem calm to most, but Mets fans understand that underneath the melancholy exterior is a fuming fanatic ready to burst.
