“I just hope both teams are having fun”

"I just hope both teams have fun” (or “I just hope both teams are having fun” or “I just hope both teams had fun") is a jocular saying—often by a woman who doesn’t care about professional team sports, or a major sporting event such as the Super Bowl or World Series—that has been printed on many images. The saying is a joke on the classic mother’s advice to children who play games that it’s not important who wins, but that they have fun.

“I just hope both teams have fun #SuperBowl” was posted on Twitter by “No, I’m not him” on February 7, 2010. “I just hope both teams have fun and nobody gets hurt. #nbafinals” was posted on Twitter by The Hoov™ on June 6, 2010.

“It doesn’t really matter who wins. I just hope both teams had fun smile” was posted on Twitter by Nick Hollins on April 22, 2010. “I just hope both teams had fun, even though the yellow team got more touchdowns smile #StanleyCupFinals” was posted on Twitter by Rosie Thoni on June 15, 2011.

#CLEMvsSCAR I think if I wore my “I just hope both teams have fun” shirt to this game I would get beat up.

My non-sports fan wife wants to wear her “I JUST HOPE BOTH TEAMS HAVE FUN!” shirt to the UK/Tenn game today. I told her that if she wears that shirt, she would likely get beat up… and deserve it.
