If you aren’t a member of the Nationals’ twitter fan following community, you’re really missing out. Major contributor @FakeFP recently created a flier, though some might call it a manifesto, containing a declaration of the community’s long-held sentiments against one of the ballpark’s seemingly most innocuous activities: The Wave. The flier declares that The Wave decreases everyone’s enjoyment of the game by distracting fans from the action on the field and annoying other fans who may not want to participate. The movement has since gained national traction, and it appears that The Wave now faces a real and mortal threat. Whatever your opinion, the flier and its story are a fun read, and can be found here.

About the Author
I've loved baseball all my life. As a kid, I went to O's games with my dad, including Cal Ripken's last game. Fortunately, the Nats came to town just as I was getting old enough to develop a fanhood. I guess I really dodged a bullet there. I was at the first game at RFK and the last, but I'll never forget the first game at Nats Park. Watching Zimmerman's walk-off soar into the night sky was a truly formative experience in my life, and is certainly one of the reasons I'm so passionate about the Nationals now.
