The Rams have moved around a bunch of times, and now that they’re back in their original home, Los Angeles, they have plenty of famous fans. Few are as intense in their love of the team as Kendrick Lamar is.
After the team moved to LA, Lamar was there on day one of training camp. Thanks to his big name, he got to run a route during the team’s practice. Here’s the big thing to know, however: when the Rams moved west, they were not a great team. Lamar wasn’t just a fair-weather fan — he’s the real deal.
San Francisco 49ers: Marissa Miller
Though by no means the only famous 49ers fan, Marissa Miller is likely the most attractive. This model and actress grew up in Santa Cruz, quite close to San Fran, and attended plenty of 49ers games through the eighties as a joint hobby with her father.
The 49ers were the team to beat the entire decade, which made it easy for Miller to enjoy watching them. Jack Reynolds, Michael Carter, Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott...the list of incredible players on the team at that time goes on. She called John Taylor's super bowl catch one of her favorite memories ever. “It was the first time I saw adults act like children.”
Arizona Cardinals: Blake Shelton
Born in Oklahoma and finding stardom in Nashville, country music star Blake Shelton is a fan of the Arizona team. While he says the story of how he became a fan is pretty long, he sometimes sums it up by saying, “it happened.”
He's friends with Steve Keim, wide receiver and team owner. Shelton even did his part to get the team to draft current quarterback Kyler Murray by jokingly threatening to choke Keim with his guitar if they didn't take the QB with the number-one pick in the 2019 draft. Thankfully, they did, which meant the guitar is safe.
Seattle Seahawks: Macklemore
There are plenty of big names who consider themselves the twelfth man when it comes to Seahawks home games. The unofficial honor of “Twelfth Man” belongs to Macklemore, a rapper famous for “Thrift Shop.” He's a Seattle native, and he had the opportunity to create a promo video for the team.
He has plenty of competition for the biggest Seahawks celebrity fan, such as Chris Pratt and Rainn Wilson, but he is a perfect choice; not only is he the most passionate, but both the team and the rapper have lost a lot of fame recently. Oh, zing.
Chicago Bears: Vince Vaughn
This famous fast talker and actor is a big fan of all things Chicago. While that does mean the good, like the architecture, museums, and deep-dish, it also means the Chicago Bears. He's frequently seen at games in private boxes and had the chance to become a small part of the team's history when he narrated the Bears' “30 for 30” film on ESPN.
It makes a lot of sense. While Vince has been in some big works, he's just not a contender for best actor, just like how every once in a while the Bears do well enough to reach the playoffs but never do much else. He also loves the Cubs.
