    Is silence golden?

    Famed Yankees P.A. announcer Bob Sheppard once mentioned how wonderful it would be if a baseball game had "no organ, no jazz, no commercials, just the pitcher and the players and quiet. Wouldn't that be a wonderful, wonderful change?"

    What do you think? Are sporting events too loud these days? Has all the in-game entertainment turned into an annoying distraction? Place your votes...

    Maybe if they stopped all the activities the fans could come up with something entertaining to do.

    ....not
    Code:
    [youtube=425,350]http://youtube.com/watch?v=LBBPoyXEOhM[/youtube]

    Only include the part of the url that comes after the '=' between the youtube tags

    Re: Is silence golden?

    The main problem I see is when the crowd is extremely into the game, making a ton of noise, only to be interruppted by some annoying rock and roll song. A P.A.'s job should be to feel the crowd and the moment, and capitalize on it. Instead they just mindlessly press buttons every time the whistle blows.

    Thanks Josdin!
