This outlet's official stance Re: The Wave is staunchly anti-, save when an imported Phillies or Mets fan starts complaining about it while Northernering grouchily through a game at Turner Field and probably bragging about snow. Then it's a sacred tradition of Atlanta's state religion, you people just hate fun, let's get shirtless and let's break out five beach balls! WWWWIPEOUT I hope the players join in!
Atlanta mayor Dale Murphy weighed in on The Wave Wednesday and attributed the phenomenon to the modern diet, in the process discovering Boston earns one Every Town Is A Bad Sports Town credit:
Anyone out there seen the wave at Wrigley or Fenway? If it doesn't happen there then it shouldn't happen anywhere.
Ever since they started selling sushi, salads, and stuff like that at ballparks, this wave thing got out of control.
