dookdookdook: Annnnd just like that my opinion of the wave does a total 180. -_-What's another equally-silly and pointless crowd pasttime that I can be a fan of now?
Manfred J. Hattan: That's their marketing plan? Their strategy to make them look less stodgy in the face of all the new iced tea brands is to remind everyone how old they are by trying to coopt a decades-old thing that's not relevant to anyone anymore? Geez, why not hire Frank Sinatra a decade after his death?
lack of warmth: Nothing new here, just advertising money being thrown at baseball games in a cornball fashion. Even the old school baseball song is an advertisement. Cracker Jacks would've died off at least a couple decades ago if it wasn't for baseball.The cornball ad move that bugs me is the 'for whatever made up reason' a section is picked to get something free from some local shop that most of the fans are never going to be ever find because they drove over an hour just for the game. I am not driving back the next day to look for some sandwich shop so I can get a free pop with a sandwich purchase just because I happened to be sitting along the third base line.
jackiepaper: Screw the wave. Thank god it's verboten at AT&T Park.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: I went to an A's game and there was a wave that went all the way around the place about 10 times. That was pretty cool.
skrame: "We thought about the fan experience and we looked at the wave and kind of considered it that quintessential time when every fan connects in a shared way," Marc Hanson, marketing director for the Pepsi Lipton Partnership, said to Sports Business Daily. "To us, it felt like sharing iced tea at home."
NicktheSmoker: You d-bags do realize that, and stay with me here, sometimes KIDS do attend baseball or other sporting events and that the wave may be more for them right? So quit being d-bags and just stand up for a GD second, you lazy a-holes.Of course, I can see why people hate it. Standing up is hard when your 200 pounds overweight.
REO-Weedwagon: Where do these people come from? How does their soul become this sh*t-stained? I swear to Christ our country has been ruined by marketing, sales, and PR whores.
