Random Slumpbuster Exile Wishlist

I am headed to the game tonight and hoping that the Phils will shed their recent offensive woes.  In honor of slumpbusting, here's a quick list of sports potent potables that...along with the slump...simply gots to go!

  • Brian Wilson's beard and all things related
  • John Sterling HR calls
  • Forced Mascots ala Dinger and Hip-Hop
  • Having to throw pitches for an intentional walk
  • Fansince09 lack of perspective in May
  • Postgame RickyBogasms
  • Wheels and McCarthy's pitch narration...no, that wasn't a breaking ball
  • Annoying cheers ala Hip Hip Jorge and the Tulo Chant
  • Interleague Play...unbalanced and run it's course
  • Trendy hyphenated nicknames ala A-Rod, K-Rod, J-Roll, etc
  • Umpires that inject their egos into games ala Country Joe
  • The Wave in close games
  • Adjacent bullpens running in from the outfield to join a bench clearing brawl
  • Wheels pretending he doesn't look up the trivia question...really just Wheels in general
  • Talking in cliches
  • Cheerleaders and/or Dance teams...especially but not exclusive to baseball
  • Reality TV, Charlie Sheen, and other celebrated debaucheries
  • Joe Morgan on Sunday Night Baseball
  • People, without young children, in your row at the game that get up from their seats more than 3 times
  • The Flyers goaltending carousel and subsequent fan obsession
  • Animal rights activists who don't realize that Vick is the best thing that ever happened to their cause
  • Andy Reid Press Conferences
  • The Tomahawk Chop
  •  

    A preliminary list of things to counter this would include more AMC original series, Journalism, and Minor League promotions like the Cowboy Monkeys of Team Ghost Riders 

    Please add to either list in the comments...having only spent a few minutes on this, I know I missed a lot.
