That new site will move here once this old site's content has been completely migrated to the new system. St. Tim taught us in 1998 that Cool URIs Don't Change, and he is still right.

katya had this to say (10/18/2006 14:28:30):
I remember seeing and doing The Wave for the first time at the second game of the National League playoffs (San Diego vs. Chicago) in 1984. I remember my mom reporting that the fans were doing it the day before (Game 1), and that it was a new thing. I'd been to a lot of Padre games (1, sometimes 2 a week) earlier that year and never saw it. Maybe Game 1 was the first time The Wave happened in San Diego?
