You Will Need
Know thy enemy
Learn the enemy's weaknesses -- a star player's issues, their city's dubious distinctions, or their habit of choking down the stretch -- to use as fodder for your taunts.
Keep it short
Make your insults concise, so you can get your taunts out before another play makes them irrelevant. Short comments are also easier to remember if you're drunk.
Think before you speak
Add wit to your heckling -- a few smart barbs can pierce even the thickest-skinned rival. Don't get too clever, though, or your jabs might not land at all.
Time it right
Find the perfect heckling moment. Look for times when the other team makes an error, when your team makes an especially big play, or when an opposing team's fan makes a sudden and total ass of themselves.
Have a comeback
Stay focused -- a great follow-up taunt to your rival's inevitable comeback will cement your reputation as a heckling master.
Don't go overboard; once you've embarrassed your target a little and won your peers' respect, let it go if you want to live to heckle another day.
