While at the Bulls game last night, a case of The Wave broke out. I don’t know if The Wave is a common occurrence in the United Center, but it should stop immediately. Chicago sports fans DO NOT do the wave. That’s what I have been taught since I was a little toddler. I suppose it’s that way in Chicago because The Wave is so trite and western-coast-like. It is quite difficult for one man to stop The Wave. It’s like stopping a storming herd of buffalo.
Though I have to admit the only reason why I wish to ban The Wave is for tradition’s sake. It was quite entertaining watching people get really excited. There was one guy in a Rodman jersey with a beer in hand getting very excited when it was our section’s turn to wave.
