lots of reds fans were whining about it in the reds game day thread (redzone.com), calling bucs fans classless and hooligans. lots of other fans around the league, that left comments at game article sights, and at other mlb boards, were cheering the chanting, they thought it was awesome. btw, if you have some time to kill, check out the game day thread at redzone.com, some very entertaining reading!



Just saw some of that.

Firstly, f them. There was an older couple watching at the same bar I was (well, it's Naples, FL so just about everyone is old). Pretty much just them and me. This old lady is screaming at the umps for calling clear balls, well, balls. Look at the pitch track, lady! Alvarez gets a strike half a foot outside and then a ball barely on the bottom half and she's apoplectic. Go home. (she did after the Walker double).

Secondly, they rail on the PNC crowd for being bandwagoners and Steeler fans, then in another thread talk about how they are giving up on Reds baseball for the moment because they think their team is poorly managed and hopeless at the moment. Yeah, try it for 20 years, idiots.

Man, I have tickets to every playoff game at PNC (season), and I could not get there for this game because I work a night shift. My dad went though. I'll be there on Sunday, but I still feel like I missed the party. That was seriously special. Not just for Pittsburgh, but baseball in general. A true playoff MOMENT that you don't see too often.

I find it funny how other "small market" teams make the post season and can't even sell out. Pirates do it and it's like a rock concert in Pittsburgh. Fun times.

And honestly, every pitcher in the playoffs is probably dreading the thought of coming to PNC after that.

It's obviously counting a lot of chickens, but...

Clayton Kershaw is notoriously 'intense' when he pitches.

How might chants throw him off his game?

I know the feeling, Animal.

After the comeback vs. the Angels, I had a raspy voice for several days.

I cannot imaging giving that exhortation over 9 innings, rather than 2.
