The Wave? Really? Seriously, People?

So, the word going around the internet is that when Raiders' receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was being attended to by the medical staff on Sunday afternoon at the Metrodome, the crowd started doing the wave. It wasn't shown on TV or anything, because the attention was focused on Heyward-Bey, and the announcers didn't mention anything about it that I heard, so I wasn't aware of it until I started reading stuff after the game.

Without knowing the full extent of the timing of it or anything like that. . .dumb move, folks. Honestly, why would anyone think that this was a good idea? There was a man down on the turf with a serious injury, and you're doing the wave?

Come on, people. You're better than that. Seriously. I know that not everyone in attendance was doing it, in all likelihood, but the fact that there were enough people doing it for others to notice is bad enough.

If this is the case, I would like to apologize to any Raider fans that might have been in attendance on Sunday for that sort of behavior. Highly inappropriate, and I would expect better from my brothers and sisters in purple.

If you were at the Metrodome on Sunday and think that this is being misreported or misconstrued in some way, feel free to comment on it and attempt to clear the air.
