Krazy George Henderson, The Man Who Created ‘The Wave’ 34 Years Ago in Oakland, California

KQED produced a wonderful profile about uber-cheerleader Krazy George Henderson, the man who created the ubiquitous sports cheer “The Wave” (where fans stand up in unison, raising their arms and cheering around a stadium in a “wave”) 34 years ago on October 15, 1981 at a home game between the Oakland Athletics and the New York Yankees at the Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum.

As KQED points out, across the Bay, San Francisco Giants fans are not so “Krazy” about “The Wave”.
