Now we get the silliness with no purpose other than to . . .well God I have no clue why they do it. It is the equivilent of the whole 'whooo' thing which also is like fingernails on a chalk board to me.
The wave at CEC is always -- ALWAYS -- started by the moron who wears a black/gold wig and a Slegr jersey, who screams at players through the hole in the glass ... He's the super fan who has been photographed by both the PG and Trib because he goes to Steelers games shirtless yet wears a Steelers tie and whoops like a maniac. He's a staple of MNF broadcasts because he's "passionate," and I regularly thank god he does not sit in front of me at Pens games.
