No one is forcing you to stay. If being at a ballpark for that long causes "uncontrollable" reactions, my advice is to leave and seem medical help b

I thought last night the people that do the howl are really no different than the type of people who would sit there and pick their nose the whole game. Sure the people around them find it rude and distasteful and lacking in total manners and etiquete but by golly they are breaking no laws or rules so if they want to pick their nose the whole game they should be able to pick their nose the whole game!!

I think we're really going to need Bob Castellini, or maybe someone like Arroyo or BP to come out and say, "hey, we appreciate your enthusiasm, but please stop."
I think it's on the organist. Everytime he hears the howl he should play the old standard charge! horn. That howl will get overridden everytime.

I noticed the other night when the wooing seemed loud, they started to play the "woo" song (at least that's what I call it), I have no idea what it's called, but if you're already wooing, it's easy to woo right along with it, and it sounds much better than just howling.
It's still a stupid song though, no words, just woo-oo, woo-oo..
So just last night, Mo Egger, Mark Sheldon, and Jamie Ramsey all ripped on the woo-ers. Add those to the list of Lance, Jim Day, John Fay, and The Holy Grail who've all been ripping on the woo recently too.
I've been muting my TV in the late innings lately, and I just hope it's not so bad during tomorrow's afternoon game that I have to mute my radio.
