    Btw: its the Reds game, " tens of thousands" is probably just as large of an exaggerated statement as the ones you've listed

    WOOOOOOOOOOO
    I promise to look up the definition of "metaphor" if you look up the definition of "sarcasm."

    Exactly what I've likened it to, except the parents are now the players. And the players have said they don't like it. Is it now en vogue to annoy them?

    It seems as if some people have very thin skin. The howl is one thing, but reading people in here complaining about the wave is hilarious.

    Man some people sure are uptight.

    Re: The Howl

    Complaining about the wave is a RZ tradition for us curmudgeons.

    Kind of like arguments over the 25th man roster slot or sending Wily Mo to the minors.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    They just need to rewrite his contract.
    "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."

    Much more an IQ point thing, with the howlers on the short end.

    I simply hate comments that say "I am just smarter than the people who disagree with me."

    Ask yourself, why do most people go to baseball games? The images are clearer and closer on TV.

    They go to be part of the crowd. Active crowd participation correlates with more attendance.

    If you would prefer a more creative crowd activity, than think one up and sell it to the masses. If we had an OH...... IO.... Maybe the Reds would draw more like college football. Think about it... Even teams like Ole Miss continue to sell out games despite decades of futility because folks still like to be part of that crowd.

    In Korea I was shocked when I saw a large bunch of college age girls sitting in front of a TV intently watching a regular season Korean baseball game. These girls knew enough stats and aspects of the game that most of us on the Zone would be put to shame. In my entire American life I have never seen or even heard of a group of college girls getting together to watch a regular baseball game. I could not understand what caused this. Then I went to a Korean baseball game.

    It was the most interactive experience I had ever seen at a live event. The American students I took, who said they hated baseball and did not want to go, fell in love with the game instantly and wondered why American baseball was so stoic by comparison.

    American baseball is becoming very Ivory Tower. How many of you are first generation baseball fans? Face it, for most, if your parent was not an avid baseball fan, neither were you. Baseball has become incestuously homogenous. If you are not a white male that spends the majority of their fan time criticizing their own team, you are a small minority in the modern baseball "fandom". That is sad.

    Not true for the more successful American spectator sports. Lots of 18 year olds who thought sports were boring get sucked in to college football their very first game if the attend as part of an active student body.

    The crowd and crowd fun pulls kids in and the magic of the game keeps them there. If you want to stop the woo, replace it with something more creative.

    Re: The Howl

    Here's what's creative about college football games for most students who wouldn't otherwise care. Alcohol. Then you get the behavior that goes along with it.

    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    If that were true, they would lose their attraction to the game after they grow out of those alcohol is a novelty years. That does not happen. The vast majority are hooked for life.

    These events are so much more than a drinkfest. Flip through these Ole Miss Grove photos and you will see.
