    For all you former Mario Bros. players. At Indians games when the Tribe scores a run after touching homeplate the "One Up" sound is played over the stadium loudspeaker. It really is stupid IMO. Any stadium sound or fan noise is better than that.

    I'd be in favor of losing the "woooo" and going with the "howl."

    Could we call it the Terrible Howl?

    They have TWO songs clip that are played every other at bat through the WHOLE season. Make Some Noise! and DaDa Da Da...DaDa Da Da are literally insufferable. The people running sound at the ballpark are impossibly bad at what they do.

    What is the song clip that they play that somewhat reminds me of the first few vocal notes (note-wise) of "Last Train to Clarksville" but most certainly is not....its kind of a "rock" song. They play it 15 times a game.

    This is beyond insufferable. I've never heard it in any other pro/college/high school arena/stadium/ball park anywhere, which says one thing: It's terrible. And I have no idea what it's saying ... it sounds like "A long fly ball" to me, but who knows? They've been playing it for years. Seriously, get some new music already.

    And while they're at it, ditch the cheesy cartoon Reds Race and run the real mascots around the field or something - like in Washington, Milwaukee and elsewhere. The current Reds Race is an abomination compared to the classic of Riverfront Stadium with the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 baseball heads racing toward the finish line. Now we get Mr. Red, Mr. Redlegs and Rosie all running around the bases and, just before they hit third, Gapper appears with some shenanigans to tamper with the race. He'll throw out the hole in which two of them fall into, or he'll throw out a jar of marbles.

    The problem is there are only three or four versions and that gets incredibly boring if you attend more than a game or two.

    I think that's the "Dada Da Da" one that speeds up and is played thirty thousand times a game despite no one in the crowd even knowing what it is. It just amazes me that an organization competent enough to handle hundreds of millions of dollars every year could self-evaluate the ballpark experience and be happy with the redundant, pointless noises blaring out of the speakers all game long.

    Then kick out the fans who try to start the infernal wave in the late innings of a close game. That's more distracting.

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Don't even start me on Gapper. My new pet peave is when Gapper replaces Mr. Red in the race and Mr. Red is used as the villain at the end. Just a complete sacrilege.

    I understand it's entertainment, but the whole organization just lacks class at the moment IMO. They should have stamped out the FS Ohio girls before that idea was even pitched, Gapper should be stuffed in a closet somewhere, stop playing the cha cha slide 15 times a game,...and one other thing I won't mention as it might ruffle some feathers. If some fans are bored, then there's nothing you can do about it. People who are bored by baseball aren't going to come to twenty games a year just because you showed a twenty second Wii race after the fifth inning.

    That's a great analogy. I listened to the end of that 14-inning game on the radio and it was definitely a distraction there.
