Update: Three Fans Root Their Way into ESPN’s Fan Hall of Fame

Screen Shot 2013-12-16 at 3.05.13 PM

Quick update on ESPN’s Fan Hall of Fame inductions – the three inductees were just announced for the second annual class. Sacramento Kings fan Barbara Rust, who is currently battling breast cancer, has attended every Kings home game since moving to Sacramento in 1985. Arkansas Razorbacks fan Canaan Sandy actually roots for more than one sport, since he is a devoted follower of multiple Arkansas teams. And Pierce Wallace, pictured above, is known as “The Georgia Joker,” and is a lifelong George Bulldogs fan. Judging by the picture, he’s also legally insane and wears a great green wig. People were able to vote for 15 finalists over a recent 10-day period for the project, which was again  produced by RED Interactive and 77 Ventures. Rust, Sandy, and Wallace – which sounds like a Nascar law firm –  will be formally inducted in 2014 and will receive permanent stadium chairs as honors on ESPN’s Bristol, Connecticut campus.
