WrestleMania: The Fans. Let's Not Forget The Fans
Last Sunday's WrestleMania promised to bring the faithful to Houston,
and in that regard at least, it didn't disappoint (unless by "faithful"
you were expecting personages of some religious significance, in which
case you'd certainly be a little disappointed). Let's take a look back
at some of the more colorful rasslin' aficionados that descended upon
5. Smiles, Everyone...Smiles!
This was taken right before Triple H's climactic entrance, but for the
life of me I can't figure out if everybody's frowning because they're
cynical, world-weary exemplars of a society fed up with disappointment
and the failure of their leaders, or if they're just Randy Orton fans.

4. The "Leagend"
The saddest thing about this picture isn't the multiple misspellings
(try to spot them all!) or the miscalculation involved in using print so
tiny the Legend Killer likely couldn't read it if he wanted to, but the
fact that the young lady pictured was actually having to use the
bathroom mere moments before Orton's entrance.
3. The Parking Attendant
Fans of Elmo's World will recognize Mr. Noodle, who rises above his fellow Undertaker fans by creating a placard that not only looks like an authentic traffic sign, but is actually spelled correctly.
I'm not up enough on my wrestling personalities to know who this guy is
supposed to be emulating, so I choose to believe he makes his living --
like Boba Fett -- hunting wookiees and other undesirables for the Empire
and wearing their pelts.
