Meanwhile, the crowd returned to its usual quiet form in less than a minute.
It got me thinking, the same would apply to baseball. Even though the game isn't as fast paced as basketball, if you've ever been to Yankee Stadium, you know the crowd will stand up for an entire at bat if the situation calls for it.
I can just imagine a called strike three causing the crowd to erupt, but then the call is overturned after a minute of instant replay review. It's an awful situation for the fans, and I'm sure it's even worse for the players.
