    gtj31 GC Hall of Fame

    Fun moniker.

    USCw baseball is like UCLA basketball. Most titles but a very focused period.

    Texas baseball is like Kentucky basketball. Most sustained success, arrogant as can be, largely beats lesser conference foes, but has the trophy case you want. I mean they legitimately used their 2004 runner-up trophy as a doorstop. Seriously…

    But with UK basketball a lot of their "titles" are things like Helms titles and not actual tournament titles.

    I knew Bernie Leadon, Sr, who was the father of the famous member of The Eagles. I heard on good authority that he used a Grammy award to hold his bathroom window open.

    When I was an undergrad at what is now a Mountain West school I was the baseball stadium announcer and did some play-by-play for the campus station. Our OOC schedule was largely schools like Cal, Stanford, UCLA, and our conference included schools like San Diego State and San Jose State. Everyone bused to games except SC—they flew to games outside SoCal. They flew to our game—maybe 200 miles.

    Back to the topic.

    Whistler sucks. We turn off the audio. You would think the advertisers would complain knowing their commercials are muted.

    I had the “pleasure” of sitting near him during the UF/Vandy game 3 on the Sunday (we took the series that day). I posted a thread about it at that time. Apparently, on either Friday or Saturday night he was so annoying (maybe Friday because they won) that there was almost a physical altercation. The guy did it so often, with seemingly no pattern as to when, it was almost like a Tourette’s situation.

    I actually blame Vanderbilt for this. They need to tell him to knock it off.

    PS. On a completely separate note, they need to get rid of their stupid plastic field (all of them do). Omaha calls it “the greatest show on dirt” for a reason. Dudes sliding all the way into left field when taking second because they are sliding on plastic.

    Rant over.

    he and his co-conspiritor were in my section for the series at our place, UF security, went to the Vandy admins and they would not interfere and the UF admins would not approve taking any action, the Security folks were as unhappy as we were

    My Mama and Dad brought us up under the philosophy of if you can’t say something nice about someone then don’t say anything at all—

    So I’m not going to say anything about the obnoxious asshole……

    Might be an interesting experiment to sit behind him, and every time he whistles lean forward and scream right in his ear.

    I'd never want to be the person sitting directly in front of him. But I recall one night at the Mac when a group of foreign students sat right behind @gatorjjh and myself and continued to be a distraction with the noise they were making. After we had enough we chose to stand until they stopped but it didn't take long until they vacated the premises and problem was solved. Point is he could complain all he wants to make someone sit down but if security won't do anything about his whistling they sure won't do anything about standing. If he moves then the fans need to take matters in their own hands and continue to stand wherever he goes.

    Not much they can do about 2 dudes whistling when they let every Miss St fan in the building bring a bell in with them.

    I was in Starkvegas for the 2004 football game and we tailgated with this MSU guy who literally trashed Ole Miss in every way the entire time. But he also showed us his cowbell and described how he made it himself.

    I like the cowbells! I hate the Whistler.

    Agree and that's why I almost always root against them. Totally obnoxious.
