Of all the great things about the barclays experience one thing that I felt was crap always is the lady that comes out at half time and breaks to hype up the crowd using T-shirts. I feel that this is such an important role that has an impact on the game via the fans in some ways similar to the role an announcer can play and that they really blew it by hiring this lady.
personally she felt to me like a resentful actor/model/singer type that had this attitude that her job was beneath her or not good enough for her and she loathed doing it. she clearly had no clue of crowd dynamics and how to work the crowd. and really, didn't care to.
you can't just expect people to cheer just because you asked them to. you have to be entertaining and work the crowd, have a relationship. she would consistently get irate when the crowd wouldn't respond much when she would say "where's brooklyn?" as if the fans are robots that should automatically just start cheering because she said so without putting in any genuine effort what so ever to have a like-able relationship. Fans might even start cheering just from that if she lost that 'better than thou' attitude.
It's really the one significant part of the experience that left a bad taste for me when I would attend games.
What does ND think of her and is it important to have a GREAT hypeman/woman?
