By now you heard of the "Screaming Spurs Fan" that nearly overshadowed the San Antonio Spurs dramatic Game 1 win over the Golden State Warriors.
Her piercing shrill overpowered the TNT broadcast and she became an Internet sensation overnight. However, a couple of women are claiming to be the infamous screamer.
First off, 1250 ESPN SA's Jason Minnix and Dat Nguyen of "The Blitz" were able to track down a woman claiming to be the shrieking lady and apparently it is Laurie Aguilar of San Antonio.
In their interview, Aguilar states she had no idea her loud shriek gain so much attention, and did say she will be at tonight's Game 2. She also says the whole experience is surreal, and even gave a demonstration of her scream. Click here to listen to Aguilar tell her story with Jason and Dat.
However, Ms. Aguilar isn't the only woman who is claiming to be the screamer.
Val Garcia of San Antonio is also claiming to be the "Spurs Screamer."
Jason Minnix also stated that a couple more have claimed to be THE screamer (click here to read about yet another woman claiming to be the culprit).
Perhaps tonight we shall find out who the mystery woman really is.
the funny part is i can here certain fans screaming or yelling via announcers microphones at nearly every games in every arena. it's not unusual, so it's pretty ammusing that this one event became an internet sensation, almost overtaking the spurs' historic win.
btw, i didn't hear anyone complaining during game 4 against the lakers when a fan who was sitting directly behind the announcers was yelling profanities at manu and bonner. it was loud enough you could hear it on national tv, and the ref even stopped the game until he stopped. where was the media then? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AURQFljQ91g
My favorite comment on the screaming lady I read on the internet (found it on yahoo):
"The fans of the spurs attending Game 1 of the 2nd round should be ashamed of themselves. Clearly a woman was being gang raped in the stands and no one did anything to stop it. But then again, the game was so damn good, I wouldn't have wanted to move from my seat either. Sorry screaming woman, I hope you are not pregnant:P"
