Dad: Son you got to quit smoking marijuana
Son: But Dad it got me friends
Dad: Would they like you if you don't smoke?
Son: No, that's why I do it
Dad: If you're desperate enough for friends that you ride the bandwagon then they aren't worth your friendship

(verb, the act of bandwagoning) to become a supporter or fan of something, esp. a sports team, solely due to the said item or team's general success and/ or popularity. Bandwagoners are believed to compose a large portion of many pro sports franchises in the United States, including the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Lakers. In the sports world, bandwagoning is generally frowned upon as it is associated with selling out. Bandwagoning is often confused with "fair weathering," which is different because while bandwagoning involves switching teams, fair weathering is merely ceasing to follow a team when they are no longer successful.
Jim, a lifelong loyal Astros fan, was accused of bandwagoning by his brother Darren when he started rooting for the Yankees.

When an individual cheers for a team when they're in the playoffs, but doesn't actually watch the games, even when they get the low budget cable station the game is being televised on.

What the bandwagon says happened: "Dude, that game last night was incredible! Boston totally outplayed Chicago! Go Bruins!!!"

What actually happened: The bandwagon watched a few minutes of the game and then fell asleep only to wake up the next morning, check their phone and find out that Boston won in overtime.
