All throughout WM last night, my local gang were paying as much attention to the crowd as the matches. Here's my best guess: 5,000 Seattleian people decided simultaneously "Hey, I know! Let's make a weird, non-sequiorial sign and hold it up all the time!"
End result was sort of a WWE version of the Confuse-a-Cat sketch from Python. There were a few generic "You Suck" or "Hogan Rules" type signs, but also a ton of very oddball scribblngs. A few good ones we spotted:
"YOU ARE BUTT" "POON" "WHERE ARE MY PANTS?!" "CHEESE BITING ORANGE MONKEYS" (or something like that, it was never clear)
Oh, and the row of people who somehow snuck in the letters needed to spell out F*CK. Impressive.
The people going to their seats with the two signs held together: 'Lots of' and 'People suck'
If they studied their paper money for clues as to what their country was all about, they found, among a lot of other baroque trash, a picture of a truncated pyramid with a radiant eye on top of it, like this:
Not even the President of the United States knew what that was all about. It was as though the country were saying to its citizens, "In nonsense is strength."
Originally posted by MoneyInk"2" was for the 2 counts in the match
One of the people with the "2" sign, had a "1" on the other side. I noticed this at the end of the Lesnar/Angle match. When the ref hit one, he showed the "1" side. When the ref hit two, he showed the "2" side. And when the ref hit three, he tore up the sign and threw the pieces into the crowd. Clever.

This is really embarassing. But in '97 the day before Pillman died in St Louis (The Bad Blood PPV). I met Shawn Micheals at Union Station. He was signing some autographs and had a beautiful girl with him.
