The excitement of the crowd made baseball so much more interesting that it is in the states. There is a section that is called "performance seating" it is up high and contains several trumpet players, drummers, people with large flags and it is the section of the crowd in which everyone knows the chant and the motions that go with it. There is even a crowd director that conducts the crowd the same way that someone would conduct an orchestra.
The best part is in the 7th inning everyone blows up these huge red (slightly phallic looking) balloons. Some people sitting near Jeff and I gave us balloons so we were not left out. The balloons have a special plastic nozzle on the end where you blow them up that makes it easier to blow up and I think it helps them fly better. There is then a song and you wave your balloon back and forth and then you let the balloons go.
You can see the total enthusiasm that the crowd participated in the song.
It was a surprisingly short game, it was only about 2.5 hours long. The carp won the game 4 to 3 and everyone left happy.
