FAN STATES, in football we trust
These borders are real for six months a year. From opening
day to the Super Bowl. The majority of fans in each state
pledge their allegiance to the team shown - regardless of
unseasonable weather, draft picks, QB sacks, questionable
trades, uniform redesigns or zero win seasons. These lines
will stay true unless the citizens of each state vote to redraw
the borders next season.

This was the first in an ongoing series of plotting the United States based on a census of sports fans. Using the census data, I redraw state lines based on fan affiliations.
