What's the most annoying cheer/act in sports?
This week, I’ve been at Tropicana Field, home of the inspiring Tampa Bay Rays and the annoying cowbell.
That’s what these fans in St. Pete do when they want their boys to rally. They shake their cowbells.
Who would have thought there would be such a thing as too much cowbell?
It’s not the most annoying cheer (or cheering apparatus) in baseball, however. The tomahawk chop in Atlanta is pretty irritating, and it didn’t even start with the Braves. So it’s stolen and annoying.
I actually think the rally monkey in Anaheim is somewhat entertaining. And I guess I can deal with the “Let’s Go Red Sox” and “Let’s Go Yankees” chants, even when they are in Camden Yards.
The wave, however, I can absolutely do without. I’d rather take a Justin Verlander fastball in the noggin than participate in the wave. If the Orioles want me out of the press box, all they have to do is institute a mandatory wave, and I am history.
The wave, to me, is the worst fan act/cheer in all of sports. Hate it.
There I’ve gotten that off my chest.
Now, more cowbell.
