I hate the haka. I liked when France walked towards them, challenging them and showing that they were not intimidated by the Maori war dance.



How can you hate the Haka? It's one of the most honoured traditions in all of sports. It's also an incredible site to watch. France simply did what Ireland did the other year when they locked arms and confronted the Haka as a unit. The difference was Ireland got about 6 inches away from the All Blacks instead of keeping that safe 30 foot distance ;) . Oh and you could SEE the fear in France's eyes. Didn't matter if the trembled forward a few steps.

1. "You'll Never Walk Alone" at Anfield
2. "You'll Never Walk Alone" at Celtic Park
3. Towel Power at Pacific Coliseum / The Garage / Rogers Centre
4. The Haka anywhere
5. "White Is The Color" at Empire Stadium

I despise baseball, but, "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" during the 7th Inning Stretch at Wrigley with Harry Carey has to be up there, too.

I always found this commercial amusing.



If I were captain/coach of the other team I'd tell them to just keep warming up/ignore them while they do their silly little dance.

All that aside, Towel Power is the best.

My footy team, West Brom, has a fun tradition - at the last away game of every season the fans do fancy dress with a theme. One year I was dressed as Wolverine, lost in Hammersmith, with lots of people staring at me. Good times :lol:

The "Tomahawk Chop" at Atlanta Braves games. Went to a game as a Mariners fan, returned as a Braves fan.

Yes...the atmosphere is amazing. It's something the Braves have done for quite a while...it's awesome.

I didn't really "jump ship" either. I was a fan of the Mariners, but no where near a "die hard", or anything remote to it.

I can kind of understand. I had barley even watched soccer when I went to my first Whitecap's game, and sit in the Southside.The atmosphere there was so great, I literally bought season tickets the next day

What's better than the Haka? Haka vs. Sipi Tau!

This just makes me want a pro Rugby league here in North America.

You do know the Haka is a traditional Maori war dance. They did it before they KILLED other people. I think it is bulls**t that the All Blacks are allowed to scare the crap out of you, and if you do anything about it, you get fined.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Okay, so I've given it a lot of thought and I've decided that my favorite fan tradition is the one where Alberta hockey fans switch from cheering for their own teams to cheering against the Canucks every April...

Red Sox fans singing Sweet Caroline in the middle of 8th inning at Fenway Park. Watching Red Sox games at Fenway Park is already a magical experience. Whether Red Sox are winning or losing, this is the moment when everyone in the stadium gets united and sing.



Locally, I give huge props the Southsiders at the Whitecaps FC games. They brought positive and fun cheering culture to Vancouver and created fun atmosphere at the games.

I doubt that any of their opponents are actually intimidated, it's just that the All Blacks are so damn good that the opposition looks like they were intimidated....

A few Celtic songs in that video.

Although I found it quite funny when they said they wanted it to be the loudest, most boisterous venue anywhere. Good intentions, but it's never going to happen. The atmosphere is quite impressive though.If only you could get 20-30,000 more spectators for each game.

It makes one wonder about the wisdom of trading away three of the most popular players on the roster, especially when the team was doing well in the standing before the trades and immediately went on a slide afterward...

I don't watch much of the MLS ( I do keep up to date with scores and standings etc. though), and was just wondering what exactly it is about Seattle that makes them so popular.

Their attendances are fantastic for North America.

Atmosphere. Their crowed is essentially one giant support group. They have much fewer chants, and songs, and they are also easier to sing, as well as to remember. The Emerald City Supporters get the whole stadium involved, which is something most support groups fail to do. Including the Southsiders. No offence to them, they are great, but some of their chants are not the easiest to make out in any other section. If they were simpler, more would get involved.
