Some Blue Jays fans just don't get it.

You're at the game, and the home team is destroying the Tigers. Everyone is having fun, and then you have to be a goon and chuck stuff onto the field. Come on, what are you doing? Really?

That thought entered my mind quite a few times last night when the Jays were up big in the 8th inning and the game was delayed for nearly 10 minutes because fans started heaving beer cups, batteries, golf balls, baseballs, you name it, in the direction of the Tigers players...

The P.A. Announcer (who took a long time to address the crowd) eventually informed everyone at the Rogers Centre if this behaviour continued it would spell a forfeiture of the game for Toronto. And yet a few fans were still tossing debris onto the field. Those fans aren't true fans. They're just dumb...

Another ridiculous thing you see constantly at Jays games are people on their cell phones talking to someone a few sections down, waving frantically to get their attention! What's the deal with that? Do you realize how ridiculous you look? I don't even understand the point in doing it, because it's never as if their "friends" move to sit beside them. Mainly they distract other fans and look like a fool in the process...

And don't even get me started on how much i LOATHE the "wave" at sporting events...

aw come on! What's wrong with the wave?
Sure it's gimmicky and whatever, but it makes people get into the game. It makes the idiots on their cell phones look up and raise their hands for a second. Stupid or not, it's just one of those things I've always enjoyed about the Skydome experience (that's right, I said SKYDOME)
