"Boys, I'm one of those umpires that misses 'em every once in a while so if it's close, you'd better hit it." Cal Hubbard
For all you former Mario Bros. players. At Indians games when the Tribe scores a run after touching homeplate the "One Up" sound is played over the stadium loudspeaker. It really is stupid IMO. Any stadium sound or fan noise is better than that.

I'd be in favor of losing the "woooo" and going with the "howl."
Could we call it the Terrible Howl?
For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.
And while they're at it, ditch the cheesy cartoon Reds Race and run the real mascots around the field or something - like in Washington, Milwaukee and elsewhere. The current Reds Race is an abomination compared to the classic of Riverfront Stadium with the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 baseball heads racing toward the finish line. Now we get Mr. Red, Mr. Redlegs and Rosie all running around the bases and, just before they hit third, Gapper appears with some shenanigans to tamper with the race. He'll throw out the hole in which two of them fall into, or he'll throw out a jar of marbles.
The problem is there are only three or four versions and that gets incredibly boring if you attend more than a game or two.
Wear gaudy colors, or avoid display. Lay a million eggs or give birth to one. The fittest shall survive, yet the unfit may live. Be like your ancestors or be different. We must repeat!
I understand it's entertainment, but the whole organization just lacks class at the moment IMO. They should have stamped out the FS Ohio girls before that idea was even pitched, Gapper should be stuffed in a closet somewhere, stop playing the cha cha slide 15 times a game,...and one other thing I won't mention as it might ruffle some feathers. If some fans are bored, then there's nothing you can do about it. People who are bored by baseball aren't going to come to twenty games a year just because you showed a twenty second Wii race after the fifth inning.
