Wrestling fans always seem to take offense when they are referred to as mouth breathing morons by "reputable" news sources... however, they always seem to feed right into this stereotype by participating in the dumbest behavior at live wrestling shows. For example, I cruised on over to 411 this morning to see if there were any live accounts of Raw... I generally enjoy these reports, as they tell the true story as to how the crowd felt about a certain wrestler, etc. Unfortunately, they also report on any goings on in the audience as well. Personally, I have no use for that crap, nor do I care. So what if someone was acting like a moron and got tossed? No big deal, that's to be expected at almost any and every sporting event in North America. My problem with this recapper is that he takes the time to simplistically narrate what happened:
"...one guy in the lowers before we even went to Heat, then another during a commercial break near the last quarter-hour of RAW, which was complete with fan interaction, singing "Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey..."
As an avid sports fan, I have been noticing said chant for like ten years. Ten years ago, it was sorta cool. Now it seems as though the redneck masses have latched on to something so insanely outdated, but yet still brag about it as if it were cool.
I'm heading off for the Allstate Arena in a couple hours for tonight's Raw. Even though I wish we would have gotten Smackdown! this time around (we just had Raw last Feb. when Rock and Hogan had their confrontation) I'm still pretty psyched.
