tragic /'trædʒɪk/  

(countable noun) Usage note: This term is used by some speakers.

A person who is a great fan of something. The word is often used humorously.

Example: The Prime Minister's occasional appearances in commentary boxes and weak-kneed devotion to anything wearing a baggy green cap have done little to make it clear whether he is a genuine aficionado or just another cricket tragic.
