Glad the Vol navy made it. I tailgated there a couple of times last season

/the abortion that is the Duck's jerseys should be nowhere on that list. Nike shouldn't be able buy tradition. It should just happen
//I have give it to A&M, the 12 man yell practice is pretty cool
///Go Vols

how is the haka not higher on the list? thats pretty damn cool.
 
2012-12-20 10:54:43 AM
Silent Night is pretty awesome.
 
2012-12-20 10:55:06 AM
I'm glad to see the All Blacks' Haka war dance on there. That's the coolest in my opinion.

Dont the Giants usually play like shiat it November and bounce back in December?
 
2012-12-20 11:00:37 AM
I'd have to put The Haka at #1. The yell practice is pretty damn cool, but, the haka is badass.

Yeah, I don't know if the defending super bowl champions can be accused of any sort of collapse...

So much this.

The running of the buffalo is infinately excellent. The football team however, is not.

As much as I dislike the Giants, they usually start surging this time of year. Don't see it happening this year though. knock on wood. Go Cowboys!
 
2012-12-20 11:36:06 AM
I'm as big a Cubs fan as you'll find, but I think they really need to kill the 7th inning stretch with the special guest. More often than not it's someone who doesn't know anything about sports, and Len has to conduct an interview segment while the game is happening. These are rarely fun or interesting,

They could also stand to kill off the singing after every win. That song is stupid.
 
2012-12-20 11:36:07 AM
Please tell me the coolest tradition in the Big 10 is on there. No, not your stupid dotting of your farking I OHIO. GTFO.

JUMP AROUND.

Even better is that MSU now does it with the crowd.

Noticeably absent is a John Denver song.

ALL O' DIS! But you know what I like? I like that since this particular year, the New York Football Giants are flailing, they got mentioned in the headline instead of the Cowboys, who have won 3 December games for the first time since 2001. Warms my heart, y'all. I'm hopeful. It feels..... LIKE CHRISTMAS!

They prefer their collapses to occur in December instead of February, like some teams.

Also, I can think of 4 Superbowl titles, off the top of my head for the NYGs. I wish the Eagles' "collapses" had those kinds of results going for them.

OK reading the article now. Terrible Towel? No. Lambeau Leap? YES.

OHIO, my alma mater, is not in the Big 10-11-12-13-14. But THE MOST EXCITING BAND IN THE LAND did do an excellent version of Gangnam Style that even PSY really liked.
 
2012-12-20 11:58:45 AM
What, no love for "Forward Down the Field"?
 
2012-12-20 11:59:04 AM
Smacking a sign? No.
 
Planting a flaming spear at mid-field? YES (And really, they couldn't find a better video than that one? for sh... oh wait, this is Bleacher Report we're dealing with here. I forgot. My bad.)

and a chance to win 2 more? why do you hate tradition!

/Cowboys win 5 games in December? Maybe the Mayans were right.

I would like to preface this by saying I am a Longhorn fan & this post in no way implies any level of fandom for the Aggies of Texas A&M outside of an admiration for their Heisman-winning quarterback & his completely badass nickname.
 
First of all, as an alum of my college marching band, I would like to say that while the script Ohio thing looks really cool from the stands, it's not really that hard to do. And neither is anything the Texas A&M band does, for that matter.
 
Second of all, as a member of said band, I got to travel to College Station to watch my team get demolished by the Aggies once. Kyle Field on gameday is really amazing. Everyone in the stands participates, everyone sings, everyone sways, everyone cheers. It really is a great experience, even if you hate the stupid Aggies & have your whole life.

Ok. Thought maybe you were one of the Hoke fans who have embraced his 2 year tradition of calling tOSU "OHIO".

BSC Young Boys, a Swiss soccer team, has 'The Hot Seat'. It's a single red seat, the first installed in the stadium. Some dignitary is given the seat every game, including new players to the team.

The new players are offered a lap dance in the Hot Seat.
 
2012-12-20 01:59:47 PM
Yeah, the team with two rings in the last five years? Might not be a good target of ridicule.

I know everyone loves Jump Around, and I do too, but for some reason Varsity just gets me every single time. I got choked up just listening to the Youtube clip.

I like to mess with one of my co-workers when he talks about "Wisconsin" or "the UW" (meaning the University of Wisconsin-Madison) by saying "You mean the University of Wisconsin-Madison" or "the University of Wisconsin that is in Madison, right?" Of course he replies by saying, "You went to UW-Milwaukee, you wouldn't know, now would you?"

//From Madison, I know.

Most football games end with players milling about and shaking hands. It isnt organized but it happens.

Facts are meaningless. You can use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true. Facts, schmacts.

As an Eagles fan, I would gladly wish for the end of the world if it meant the Cowboys (and Giants, and Redskins, for that matter) don't see the playoffs.
/Especially since it would also put the Eagles out of our misery

Jumping around and waving towels around is considered an event in American sports?

New York Football Giants.

Fixed for all.
