A no-hitter on the road



After watching the final outs of Verlander's no-hitter, I noticed that the fans were giving him a standing ovation and were standing the whole ninth inning, even though the game was in Toronto.  Now, this could be because the Jays have very few fans, but I picked out plenty of fans in the crowd who had on Jays apparel and cheered anyway.  That made me wonder, is it allowable to give an opposing player a standing ovation?  If you were at Fenway, and the opposing pitcher (assuming he's not from MFY, or any other rival) threw a no-no, would you cheer? Would you boo? Would you give him a standing-O?  It's a tough question.  I think I would cheer, but a standing ovation seems like it would be a slap in the face of your team.  I'd love to here your opinions.
