I'm with you-if the team plays well, fans will cheer without help. Don't need organized. Banging on the glass when the team scores is just another way for an individual to cheer. Banging incessantly during play is just plain distracting and a form of "look at me." But, like you say, we're not in charge, so we just move on. The cheering in my basement last night was exceptionally loud, and I was watching by myself. Let's hope for a repeat tonight!
