It's like somebody sat down and decided to try and think up something fans could do that would be MORE annoying than the wave.
And the function for fans is EXACTLY the function of the wave. It isn't organic cheering. It's what ....these folks...do when they get bored and stop watching the game. Last night the reds were up 11-0 and not a howl to be heard. Dusty takes Leak out and puts in the kid from AAA to get him an inning and the kid promptly give up a homer. Up starts the howl continuously for the rest of the night. It's got nothing to do with the baseball game. It's ALL look at me...listen to me.....I am here.
Not a fan of the howl at all.
DFS, unfortunately, I haven't been to a game since the howling started. Just watching on TV. Guess we'll see Sunday, when I'll be at my first of the season. (Which I'm psyched up for BTW, hoping Bailey stays hot!)
