Fair Weather Fan

A fan of a sports team who only shows support when the team is doing well. During hard times they usually bandwagon other teams. They basically have no real loyalty to the team, but still, manage to get better seats than you at the game. Strangely they mysteriously vanish at the first sign of trouble.
Fairweather fan: "OMG what a comeback! That was amazing!"

Regular fan: "How would you know? You left right when Favre threw the pick-six in the 2nd and if I recall you didn't even start rooting for Green Bay until 2 weeks ago."

Fairweather fan: "... GO PACK!"

(After the playoff game the fair weather fan immediately became a Pats fan and stowed all Packer memorabilia away.)

The love I bear him, made me to fan you thus,
But the gods made you, unlike all others, chaffless.
