    IIRC it would be because whilst the minority audience for Am Football in the
    UK (I was one too) saw the wave in games earlier, most people didn't see it
    until the 1986 World Cup in... Mexico, and thus became colloquially known in
    the UK as the Mexican wave. It has even spread to Wimbledon (when they let
    the rabble in... to cheer Tim Henman heroically bottle it and get beat).
