Just don't get your Football in my Baseball, OK? BAMARAMARAMARAMARAMARAMA.
That also pretty much describes the difference between baseball at New Comiskey Park and at Wrigley as I experienced it a few years ago. Obviously the White Sox are the football team among the two Chicago baseball clubs.
I got to see City Field for the first time this past Sunday and, for first impressions, I think the Mets are trying to strike that balance (or more cynically, have it both ways). It seemed like the inning breaks had more old-timey organ music than usual, but the BAMARAMARAMARAMA was more pronounced when it did happen. Or maybe this is just a function of the fact that they now have stadium-wide speakers, instead of two big ones planted in the outfield.
I like Citi the time I went. But I didn’t pay much attention to the game, and roamed a bit, so I didn’t pay attention to the sound effects..
I don’t get the whole “BAMARAMARAMARAMA” thing. What am I missing here? Does it just mean really loud new music?
I read it as a bit of onomatopoeia invented by the author to suggest the cacophony of announcements, ads and music all blending together.
