The Reds currently sit at 18-15 at the time of this article being written. The team is only one game out of first place in the NL Central and has played beyond most, if not everyone’s, expectations. Joey Votto is being Joey Votto, Billy Hamilton is stealing bases, Zack Cozart & Eugenio Suarez are being productive at the plate and the pitching staff is actually doing ok through the first month of the season.
So what are we talking about? The “Wooooooo”. Yes, the noise a great deal of Reds fans are making near the end of each game at Great American Ball Park. Can it be annoying while one watches on TV or listens on radio? Yes. Do most of the “media elite” in Cincinnati seem to be against it? Yes.
And that is what now makes it appealing. When those who are seemingly in charge or blowhards like Lance McAlister are against something, it makes it more appealing to a good portion of the regular fan base. So when the Reds return from their current road trip next Friday, expect a lot of “wooooing’. I mean a LOT. When someone thinks a person on their high horse is telling them not to do something, human nature kicks in and they do it.
So if you are not a fan of the “Woo”, be sure to pack a pair of earplugs for Friday, May 19th at GABP.
