Beer! You hit the nail on the head!

My old man used to watch the wrestling on TV only FOR the audience. People screaming and contorting as if THEY were in the ring (or out). Especially the women. I recall an incident specifically. A little old lady got a hold on The Beast's hair at ringside while he was down and she would not let go, screaming all the time in Shaque (a mix of Acadian French and Anglaise for the those who). He laughed about it for days.
