    He deserves the harshest Starman justice possible.

    For those needing some navigational help...

    OAKLAND, Calif. - Krazy George Henderson has spent the last quarter-century trying to persuade everyone that he debuted the "Wave" during an Oakland Athletics' playoff game against the Yankees _ not those Washington football fans who claim the Huskies first performed the now famous cheer.

    Debate aside, the Wave is 25 years old and still going strong.

    "It's been really interesting," Krazy George said in a phone interview from his home in New Rochelle, N.Y. "I see it at the Olympics. There's a video of Fidel Castro doing it. If it had actually originated in New York at a Yankees game, they would have thought it was sent by the gods."

    But yes, he deserves scurvy.

    Feel sorry for him. His entire self-esteem is based on his making a phony claim on a bad idea.

    Where exactly is The Wave still going strong?

    Does anyone else think Janie McCauley wanted to change careers after writing that article?

    Apparently during the third quarter of a Chiefs game a few weeks back. I about wet myself when I saw it on TV.

    NOt sure when Washington fans say they started it, but I vividly remember that playoff game, Krazy George, the wave and the announcers (I want to say Joe Garagiola) marveling at it. Cameras cut to it a dozen times.

    Krazy George is an ass, of course, but he might have a point.
