The official MLB Twitter account has been running a contest today to promote MLB.tv. Basically, they’ve been asking fluff questions and picking a response that had the #MLBTVme hash tag.
It was going fine until this question popped up:
Yes, MLB is asking its fans to pick between the two most annoying things that happen at a baseball game. Of course, the correct answer to this question is kiss cam. It’s annoying but at least it takes place between innings and doesn’t actually mess with anything going on on the field.
There were plenty of people who recognized this lesser of two evils.
However, there were far too many that just don’t get it. After the jump, check out what we’re up against here.
According to this guy, the wave, created in the ’80s, is the classic thing about a 150 year old sport.
No, the wave doesn’t get the crowd into the game. And your home team wants you actually cheering, not looking around for your next turn to stand up in unison.
Pride is the absolute last thing a crowd doing the wave should feel.
Things that 40,000 people can do that are better than the wave: almost anything.
And I don’t even know what to say about this one.
