    I agree. Not a howl fan! I just hope I never sit right by someone doing it. Who wants to sit by anyone that just randemly yells anything the entire game. I have found myself turning down the volume on the tv. I guess if our name had wolves in it or something, but with Mr. Red, Rosie Red, and Gapper = NOTHING to do with a howl. I guess I just don't get it, but unfortunately it seems here to stay. By in my opinion it gets in Z formation!
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    They were likely insulting their own clientele!

    Anyone notice they were doing it in Pittsburgh as well? Not that it should make us feel any better, but the howl made it's way to the steel city over that weekend we played there. I could hear it on my TV.

    Much earlier in the thread, it is discussed that Pittsburgh fans were doing it before Cincinnati fans.

    Somebody can correct me if I'm wrong, but the "Holy Grail" is a new bar/restaurant located in "The Banks" by the ballpark. At least I think that's what you're asking.

    Re: The Howl

    The fact of the matter is that the more some people complain about it, the more other people are going to woo. Telling someone they are being stupid when they think they are being cool isn't a very compelling or winnable argument.

    I just hope it fades away.

    That's great. I don't think anybody cares if random Cincinnati media members don't like it.

    Are you going to hold your breath until your turn blue if someone tells you to knock it off?

    Dusty Baker needs to grab the microphone and emulate this guy, substituting 'wooing' and 'Pittsburgh'.

    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Re: The Howl

    Between the complaining about this, the songs at the ballpark, the broadcasts of the games and various other things, I think a lot of Reds fans seriously need to chill out.

    This thing is silly and whatever, but it sure as hell doesn't warrant the amount of attention nor outrage its been given here.

    Pay an extra couple bucks at the GABP UDF and get double the fluid ounces!! Now there's something kind of worth not complaining about.
