Devoted fan bases can make or break careers. Without a loyal following the celebrity, sports team, organization, or franchise will only go so far till it runs out of cold hard cash. And that's where the best fan bases come in. Fanboys and fangirls pump loads of dollars into the one thing they are fascinated with. Why do fan bases do this?
