    Wichita State Shocker Fans

    Was watching the UNI - Wichita State game and noticed something pretty disturbing. All of their fans including their cheerleaders and even some kids were throwing the shocker hand sign all over the place. I won't go into details about it but if you know what I'm talking about then you know why it is crazy that kids and even older fans were throwing it all over the place. Funniest part was when a male cheerleader came up behind a female cheerleader and reached around her to throw the shocker sign up about 2 feet from the camera.

    My wife and I were just rolling laughing every time we saw their fans. Obviously the students understand what they are throwing out there but no way does an 8 year old kid understand it and you wonder how many of the older fans even know what they are doing with their hands.

    Was just wondering if anyone else noticed this.

    the only way that this can be justified is if they've been doing this in wichita long before it became the universal sign for two in the pink one in the stink

    what it really is.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    If it was being used for something other than the current act that it symbolizes then I'd like to know what that is. It's not like someone one day said, "hey that's a cool hand signal, look what else I can do with it".

    WSU isn't known as the shockers because of this and it's unfortunate that this bears the same name as their team name. The school needs to get ahead of this and at least keep the people representing the school from continuing to do it. They may even want to go as far as sending out some literature with their tickets next year to make sure that everyone knows exactly what they are doing because I have to believe that other than the students, most do not.

    or they could just ignore it and not get hung up on trivial things.

    I'm betting that's exactly what happened.
