Wave That Towel

from the NY Times,
Towel Man’s celebration routine after Blues goals has made him a linen legend in St. Louis. In the past 16 years, Towel Man has become as much a celebrity as Wayne Gretzky, MacInnis and Hull. “Towel Man has become my alter ego,” said Ron Baechle, 47, a commercial artist who lives with his wife, Mary, and three children in St. Louis. “I enjoy getting fellow fans and the players motivated, and as long as I’m having fun doing it, I’ll keep doing it.” After the Blues score, the Towel Man, who is perched high in Section 314 Row E Seat 13, begins frantically waving a towel bearing his likeness and making his way down a staircase, then stands on a railing.
