The answer is after the jump.
Apparently, there has been a bit of a thing amongst the dozen or so Nats fans and writers as to whether the six or so fans at each Nats game should do the wave (which is pretty much the most Nats fan thing there could possibly be). Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog detailed such thing today, explaining it thusly:
By now, you’re no doubt familiar with the ongoing controversy roiling Nats Town and attracting national attention, involving pro- and anti-wave forces. Players are largely against it, from what we can tell. A large and vocal faction of fans is also trying to end the wave.
The battle reached a boiling point on Saturday afternoon, when one fan sitting near the back of Section 109 repeatedly attempted to start a wave during later innings — including while the Nats were in the field, an ever bigger sin than usual, as the wave theoretically could distract the home team’s pitcher.
That occurrence led to a skirmish of sorts in the crowd. And today, Brycecakes weighed in with his thoughts, which are very wrong– the wave is for moms and kids who are bored and out of ice cream. Fans don’t do the wave. Sure, you might tolerate it, but you don’t encourage it. Only douches encourage it… and there’s at least two of them on the Nationals.
