    Or better yet, change their entrance music to the music that Ric Flair used to walk down to the ring with (and if I am not mistaken, he had a big WOOOO, right before the music started).

    Re: The Howl

    I'm struggling with the validity of all of this though. It seems it's split down the middle half using a Rick Flair Whoooooo! which I'm good with, the man walked with style and profile along with being the dirtiest player in the biz. The other half going with the Howl. Kinda need someone to step in and get this straight. I see Cincy tee's is on the Flair Boat.

    ...Actually, I didn't get to find him. I was meeting my girlfriend there who came down from Fairborn so we could walk in together and we didn't actually get seated until the bottom of the 1st. And although we had good seats, we were sort of land-locked per se by people all around us, which makes it an annoyance, at least for me, to go to and from different spots around the park very much.

    But I have tickets for 3 more regular season games as well as Home Game 1 of the NLDS (it was totally worth taking a lien out on my car ) so I still vow to find him at some point.

    I will say though, that in my section there was a LOT of howling going on. I was in Terrace Outfield 104 in Row B, and we were howling our voices out once the 8th inning rolled around. And at least in my section, it definitely wasn't a "woo", it was a howl all the way.

    At the same time, I'm not sure how much of it was going on around the rest of the park. My section was doing plenty as I said, but I really ddidn't hear much coming from other sections. Whether or not that means they really weren't or if it might just be harder to hear over regular crowd noise when you're at the park, I don't know.

    In any event, an awesome night at the park. I encourage those of you who live within distance and have the means to go, do so by all means. I've shattered my own personal record for games attended this summer and I've loved every minute of it. Worth every penny in my book.

    Spectacular!

    Love the howl. Spicing up a weekday September series and annoying the crap out of the Pirates works for me.

    It spread to Wrigley tonight!

    I actually don't want Reds fans doing it on the road before its well established as our thing. Otherwise other fans of opposing teams are gonna start doing it too and try to claim it as their own.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    This is what you end up with when you let alcohol take over and make your decisions for you. LOL

    I think it's stupid, rather embarrassing (as a Red fan), and I hope it dies off real soon.

    Really embarrassing. Wish they'd stop it.

    Yeah, I don't like it either. But I'm almost 40.

    This is cool though:

    Re: The Howl

    I can understand not liking it, but I don't see how it's embarrassing. Empty seats at home games is embarrassing. So is the away team having more vocal support than the Reds. The howl? Not so much.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    In baseball, more than any other sport, there is a large group of fans who view the game as some sort of sacrosanct religious experience meant to be treated with respect and dignity.

    My personal take is that baseball (and sports in general) is fun. Put differently, any human endeavor that encourages elderly out of shape men to wear athletic costumes and engage in pantomime debates with arbiters (including the kicking of dirt and wild gesticulations) that they literally cannot win contains a heaping helping of absurdity. I celebrate the color and the silliness in the game.

    You can probably guess where I come down on the WOO.

    Re: The Howl

    It's a novelty. It's not tradition, it's not unique, and it's not funny. I tried explaining it last night to my non-Reds fans roommates and they thought it was dumb, and I obviously agreed. It's seriously hard to watch games with the sound on while it's happening. I can't imagine what it's like to be at the ballpark for it. Please make it stop.
