"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
are we still talking about this?
I've never seen so many people defend something that clearly the majority of people find flat out annoying.
We aren't just complaining to complain. It's flat out annoying and embarrassing.
Some people here actually want the ushers to KICK PEOPLE OUT for using their 1st amendment.
This is so wrong I am amazed people actually think this way.
Some might say hearing people yell Bruuuuce every time Jay comes up to bat is annoying as well, but it certainly doesn't warrant being kicked out. Personally, I think it'd make more sense to yell "Jaaaaaay" instead of Bruuuuce because Bruuuce sounds like everyone is booing him
That, and it's unoriginal. People were doing the Bruce thing when Isaac Bruce played for the L.A then St.Louis Rams.
And as far as The Holy Grail goes, who cares what some overpriced crummy bar thinks?
They aren't the ones paying $$$ to see the Reds.
Last night during extra innings, my girlfriend asked me to turn down the TV, and said the following:
"Is that the Cubs fans doing that? That sounds like something those idiots would do."
Sadly, I had to explain that it was Reds fans doing it.
my memory isn't the best, but wasn't it thom that first noticed and got excited about the howl and seemed like he wanted it to catch on?
Next up for those defending "The Howl"
Defense of cut off shorts on men
Defense of bringing a spit cup into your car
Defense of any song by Triumph
Defense of the head slap in pee wee football
Why would I complain just to complain? Do I ever just instigate to instigate on this board? Is it THAT unbelievable to you that a LOT of us find this epidemic to be extremely annoying?
But as always, I appreciate the supporters of the "woo" trying to explain to me how I feel about it, as if you know better than I do myself.
I'm not saying a lot of you don't find it annoying or you shouldn't even find it annoying. That's not a reason to ban something though. There has to be a legitimate reason. You can hate it all you want, just as many people hate the wave. But for somebody to suggest it should somehow be banned is crazy.
