7 times female sports fans were the little girl from 'Remember the Titans'

If you're a female sports fan, you know Sheryl Yoast. You've been her. You've felt her pain. The spunky, opinionated, curly-haired little girl from 'Remember the Titans' represents the many annoying things the female population faces for liking sports.

Played by Hayden Panettiere nearly 16 years ago, Sheryl was the daughter of a high school football coach. Her gender, age or size didn't stop her from projecting the loudest voice in the stands -- by both volume and opinion. Sound familiar?

If you answered yes, here are 7 times you've been in Sheryl Yoast's shoes:

1. You've had this conversation with your non-sports-loving friends:

2. People have underestimated you, and you've probably had to put them in their place.

Sheryl Yoast: Coach Boone, you did a good job up here. You ran a tough camp from what I can see.
Coach Boone:Well I'm very happy to have the approval of a 5 year old.
Sheryl Yoast: I'm 9 and a half, thank you very much.
Coach Boone: Why don't you get this little girl, some pretty dolls or something coach?
Coach Yoast: I've tried. She loves football.

3. That face when men start quizzing you on your sports knowledge:

4. You can't think of any event that would ever come between you and your team.

Sheryl Yoast:"In Virginia, high school football is a way of life, it's bigger than Christmas day. My daddy coached in Alexandria, he worked so hard my momma left him, but I stayed with coach, he needed me on that field."

5. You can hang in any sports-related conversation.

6. Your team's performance determines your mood.

7. This is you in the stands. Every. Single. Time.

As you can see, you're not alone. Cheer loudly and wear your team colors proudly, ladies.
