    Annoying

    So i am sitting at the game today, trying to enjoy it, then all of sudden 3 boys from elementry school sit behind me and start makeing these wierd sounds and laugh the entire game and would not shut there mouths. It really bothers me when im trying to enjoy somthing and i have these turds sitting behind me. Sorry if i sound like a butt, but i paid $17 to watch the reds, not listen to little bratts give me a headache. I guess i just wish parents would do more.

    Did you tell them to shut their traps?

    I know they're just kids, but I'm not at all shy about telling people of any age to shut their traps.

    i glared at them every time they would say somthing and they would say they are sorry, then 3 minutes later it would start again. oh well it was better than sitting around all day like my usuall sundays.

    This is kind of sad in a way, but three times I have sat next to a guy that couldn't fit in one seat, or at least shouldn't try. Its one of those things where you don't know what to say about it, but it makes for a difficult time at the ball yard. It was so unconfortable, and I didn't want to say anything. Just sad though.

    There was a guy 6'5" that got drunk and put his cup on his head and started talking about his dog "Astro" Friday night when I was there. It was the only time I liked having a tall guy sit in front of us at a Reds game. Dude was hilarious.

    Re: Annoying

    Last year, my buddy and I went to a Reds game towards the beginning of the season. Were bought bleacher seats but ended up sitting 12 rows from the field behind 1st Base because there was a rain delay. The Reds were up by a few runs and the pitcher was really struggling. A drunk guy in front of us started yelling things like "you suck" and got a little out of hand. An usher came down and told him he had to stop yelling negative comments toward the players. Probably because he was hurting the pitchers feelings, or at least thats my opinion. The guy sat there quietly for a second, and then yelled out, "Yeah, thats it, I like the way you throw your balls pitcher." He let out a few more, but that was by far the best one. The pitcher immediately gave up a homer and was taken out of the game, aparently because it was to late for the sweet talk, and his feelings were already hurt. (I made this next part up because it sounds better than "I can't really remember the rest of the game") Then the usher made the guy walk down to the wall and tell the pitcher he was sorry. Unpleased with the way he said "I'm sorry" while looking at his feet, the usher then said, "now this time, look at him and tell him your sorry like you mean it." After another weak "I'm sorry" the man was allowed to go back to his seat, but under the understanding that the usher was very dissapointed in him, that the man "knew better," and that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. No word on what his father had to say when the man took the note home written by the usher, or on the supposed soap in mouth punishment.

    If he was wearing an Aaron Boone jersey and a Red Sox hat turned backwards (possibly yelling something at the right fielder) -- I'm sorry. Kick me next time and I'll slump down a little more.

    Not that it makes you feel any better, but the seats at GABP aren't exactly the most comfortable for those of us who are in the 6'10" range.

    At 6' 6", I always hear people behind me groaning when I sit down. I just shrug my shoulders and mumble something about "hereditary," "Grandpa," and "kissing" a certain part of my anatomy.

    I seem to always get a "larger" person in front of me if I'm in the lower level because of the row elevation is not so high as it is in the upper deck, bleachers and moon/sun deck.

    I have had the same thing happen, except substitute Cubs fans in place of the kids. No, I'm not trying to be funny. I had Cubs fans sitting behind me that talked loudly and didn't give a rats behind about what was going on down on the field.

    That's just about half of Wrigley. Cubs' fans are all or nothing -- either die-hard and polite, or ignorant and obnoxious. The people who scream the loudest at the opposing team at Wrigley are usually the ones who never heard the players' names before. They drive me bananas, obvs. If you're going to be a jerk, at least be a smart one.
