While watching the Rangers-Rays game Thursday night I was very disappointed to see this tweet show up in my timeline:
What better time for The Wave than a 2-1 NYY-BOS game at Fenway?
Doing the wave in any 2-1 game is a bad thing. Doing the wave in a 2-1 game at Fenway Park during a game against your biggest rival is just unbelievable. The Red Sox ended up losing the game 4-2 with Mariano Rivera striking out Adrian Gonzalez with the bases loaded in the ninth. I’m not saying doing the wave earlier in the night cost the Red Sox the game, but…
Of course if everyone taking their kids to a baseball game would follow Ian’s advice, this wouldn’t be a problem to begin with.
