Reds fans start howling in extra innings

During Monday's Pirates-Reds 14 inning marathon, Reds fans at Great American Ballpark decided to amuse themselves near the end of the game that lasted over five hours and started howling like wolves. 

This seems to happen in long Pirates games. Remember last year's mess in Atlanta, with the "LET'S GO PIRATES!" girl? Of course. I was almost more offended by Reds TV announcer Thom Brennaman seemingly encouraging the extremely irriating behavior, but whatever.

Less than 17,000 fans were in attendance for the game, and maybe 20% of that crowd was still left by the end of the game…when things like that happen, annoying chants (or in this case, howling) can get magnified and drive everyone insane…like it did on Monday in Cincinnati.
