The Wave is 25 years old

Not many people know about this, but The Wave recently turned 25 years old. Everyone has seen The Wave at sporting events worldwide. It's become a tradition everywhere from World Cups to golf tournaments to the big leagues. Despite their popularity, I haven't actually seen a successful execution of a Wave in about 10 years. It seems like some drunk college kid always tries to unsuccessfully start one up at every sporting event, but most of them fizzle a couple sections over.

Although The Wave has gone through a quiet period in recent years, the story of how it was was first performed is an interesting one. There's a huge dispute as to who did it first. Both Krazy George and Robb Weller (University of Washington) make a claim to be founders of the wave. This article makes many claims as to who started it.
