While attending the Brewers/Dodgers game at Miller Park with my work team today, the discussion arose about the worst chants in sports. After thinking about the subject for a while, I realized that there are plenty of them to choose from.
So to make things nice and easy, here is a sample of the worst chants in sports.
Get in the hole! The sport of golf is usually surrounded by a somewhat reserved and respectful atmosphere. That is, until some jabroni at a PGA Tour event yells, “Get in the hole!” after Phil Mickelson tees off on a 600-plus-yard par five. First off, that ball has zero chance of going in the hole. Secondly, you sound like a douche. Get some new material and come back to the course.
You! You! You! I’m not sure how far this one reaches, but I remember this one being popular at high school basketball games. A player would commit a foul, and was met with the repetitive chant of “You! You! You!” from the opposing student section. Thanks for pointing that out, Captain Obvious.
Any chant that is racist, sexist or offensive in any way. Sounds like common sense, right? Well, check out this story from this year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament. It proves that people not only sound stupid when being offensive, but actually are stupid.
Those are a few of the worst chants in sports fanaticism. I am 100% certain I missed tons of others, so feel free to leave them in the comments.
