Do you have a cool uncle who plays in a band? Are you crazy for a local sports team?
If you answered "yes" to these questions, you're only an awkward teenage crush away from being a television character from the '90s.
That's right, while denim jackets and heartwarming lessons about family were the main dishes of the decade, many of our favorite TV characters from '90s were also diehard sports fans. It was a time when entire episodes were based on the premise "Hey! People like sports, right?"
Yes, we like sports a lot, and we predictably connected with the super fans, jocks and other sports nuts featured heavily in '90s television.
The following are the biggest TV sports fans of the '90s, along with their real-life fan equivalents.
Some were mainstays, others were side character lunatics, but they all loved their teams and deserve your respect. Except for Newman. You can't respect the Newman.
