    Clap when the 'everybody clap your hands' guy is played?
    Do the wave?
    Chicken dance like a moron?
    Wave at the scoreboard in case they show your face?
    Stand in line for 30 minutes waiting for a plate of nachos?

    If so, what sort of baseball fan are you?

    I've been spoiled by Delta Club access seats at STP. I enjoy the all you can eat and unlimited free beer and annoy the hifalutin types that share my section.

    Nothing like going to a game and actually having a clue about what is going on on the field. Most people in the ritzies don't even know who's playing.

    Clap when the 'everybody clap your hands' guy is played? Only if I'm at the game with my kids.
    Do the wave? Fuck no.
    Chicken dance like a moron? No.
    Wave at the scoreboard in case they show your face? No.
    Stand in line for 30 minutes waiting for a plate of nachos? Before the game starts, I get food. After the game starts, I only get up to get more beer or take a piss.

    If so, what sort of baseball fan are you? :noidea:

    Clap when the 'everybody clap your hands' guy is played?
    Maybe, depends on how the game is going.

    Do the wave?
    If it gets going good, I might do it once if there isn't anything happening on the field.

    Chicken dance like a moron?
    Ahh, no. That is saved for something special, like weddings.

    Wave at the scoreboard in case they show your face?
    Nah. It's between inning anyway so you aren't missing anything.

    Stand in line for 30 minutes waiting for a plate of nachos?
    Nope. I might make a run to the concession stand between innings, but I'm not going to wait in line and miss a lot of the game. I'll catch the "cold beer" guy when he comes around and get some peanuts from a vendor if I'm just starving.

    If so, what sort of baseball fan are you?
    The kind of fan that likes to enjoy the whole experience of going to a game. I pay attention and know what is going on, but also take in all the other stuff that goes on at the game.:suds:

    I clap when when the clap music comes on. It’s not like I’m actively deciding whether to clap or not. It just happens.

    I might participate in the wave if it’s not a tense point in the game. I never stand up though. Just raise my arms.

    I don’t do the dance cam. The camera men are directed towards overweight individuals and little kids for that anyway. Fat people dancing is always funny.

    If I’m on the Jumbotron I’ll probably wave or acknowledge it, again it’s not like I’m actively thinking “what should I do?”

    Hell no I’m not waiting in line 30 minutes for food.

    I guess I am a kick-back and enjoy the babes kind of fan but depending on who's hitting, I tend to enjoy most of the sights and smells. I do miss cigar smoke!

    I never do the chicken dance or the Wave. I will look for the least populated beer vendor.

    Baseball is still the one game I can enjoy at my own pace and I can blot out anything if I want -- depending on how short her shorts are.

    I prefer the small ballparks of lower level teams. you might wait 5 minutes for a food order tops.
