Video: Fans heard howling during Reds-Pirates game


 
If you were one of the few souls on the East Coast who managed to stay awake until the conclusion of Monday's 14-inning affair between the Reds and Pirates, you may have already seen this. If not, here's the lowdown.
 
The restlessness among the Great American Ball Park crowd peaked during the 13th inning when a group of fans started howling beyond the outfield wall. The dog-like noises continued on into the 14th frame as you can see and hear in the video clip above.
 
Here's the irony of it all. The Reds hosted its second and final "Bark in the Park" event of the season on Monday. Nearly 500 canines were in attendance to see their hometown team emerge victorious. Yet none were more boisterous than the band of howling fanatics in the stands.
 
The unusual occurence seemed to have worked though. Cincinnati walked-off to a 4-3 win in the bottom of the 14th thanks to an infield single by Ryan Ludwick.

I hope this catches on for the post season. At least it would be better than getting excited about a rally monkey or some random squirrel.

Most annoying thing ever. I actually turned the game off because it was so bad tonight.
