There are some traditions in sports that should have never started. Here is a list of irritating things that occur at sports events that must stop!

  1. Marriage proposals at sporting events: Because nothing says classy like proposing to your wife at a sporting event. She's going to get a a good look at the rest of her life knowing you couldn't take one day out of your life to forget about sports to make the biggest commitment of your life.
  2. People talking on their cell phone behind home plate and then waving to the camera: How deprived of attention do these sorry losers have to be to wave their hands at the camera behind home plate. Yeah we get it, you guys are losers that have never had seats behind home plate before or have been in front of a camera.
  3. Playing "Who Let the Dogs Out?": Damn you Baha Men, Damn you! That group had to have made a deal with some voodoo priest that their song would live on long after they got back to flipping burgers. And it has, irritating sports fans for the last 8 years.
  4. Fans who hold up a No. 1 finger for their unranked team: Because what makes a bigger statement then fans from Dartmouth and San Jose St. letting you know that their teams are No.1? Who knew these fans were college sports experts?
  5. Decked-out Raiders fans: Even though this is about as ridiculous as people dressing up like Yoda and Chewbacca at Star Wars conventions, I am not about to start a fight with Raider Nation, they can do whatever they want as long as they stay away from small animals and children.
