The Irishman with his "Wirrah!" and "Begerah!"
sits beside the German with his "Gott im Himmel!" and the only thing they have in common is their desire to kill the umpire. But after it is all over the chronic fan is the best-natured person alive, especially on opening day. He sits on a hard plank, six inches wide for two hours without complaint, and will cheer any little incident that happens.

-The Lancaster Daily Intelligencer, April 26, 1906
