    Awful fan fads

    Honestly, how long are we going to do the towel twirling thing in baseball? It's the most generic and least organic form of celebration imaginable at this point. It was cool in Pittsburgh in the 70s, I'll admit. But ffs...

    I imagine most ardent MLB fans hate the wave now. Is there anything else stadium goers do that makes you groan?

    The wave in MLB stadiums is pretty terrible.

    Marlins Man being on his phone every other pitch gets pretty tiresome too.

    Totally!!! Ruining an all time great song, too.

    Does anyone else get bothered by the towels, or is that just me? It seems like the thing you'd do if you didn't know how to cheer.

    Haven't seen that, but it sounds like hell.

    Pretending like every foul ball that lands in the stands must be given to the nearest child.

    Reaching into the field of play -- fair or foul - for a ball. It's a ball. There are tens of millions of balls on the planet.
    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, at least fails while daring greatly.” -- Teddy Roosevelt

    It's amazing this happens so often. Unless it's Trout's 500th homer, what value does it have?

    That ****ing Rick Flair scream stupid *** **** drives me god damn nuts.

    It's childish, it's annoying, and it's the most attention seeking, prepubescent, stupidest thing. I hate the **** out of that.

    1. I don't like wrestling
    2. I get it, it's still stupid
    2A. Wrestling is stupid, thus this is equally stupid.

    Hadn't thought of that one because it doesn't erk me so much. It's amazing how popular that's become all these years later. Maybe in a couple years I'll be sick of it too...
