When I go into an opposing teams, I expect (and am disappointed when I do not receive) some level of harassment. That's part of the pride of representing your favorite team in enemy territory.
I remember about 10 years going to my first game at NJD and being sorely disappointed that there were more Flyer fans in my section than Devil fans.
I've only had the luxury of attending an away game in my home colors once, but it was a Phillies-Reds game during the 2010 NLDS. I got minimal flak (someone calling Utley a ***** and then Utley hitting a home run during the same at bat) and then was congratulated after the game. It was pretty weird, I know what would've happened to an opposing fan in Philly under the same circumstances (Hamels shutting out the Reds and ending their season.)
