Decided to pop in and check out our local triple-A team, the Redhawks, last evening. Great (but short) game.
I love baseball games. The game, the players, the food, the fans...the seventh inning stretch.
So imagine our surprise when we all got up last night, and waited for them to kick up the music to "Take me out to the ballgame" and instead got two very off-key young women singing "God Bless America."
Now, I'm very patriotic, but this seemed just plain wrong to me. Baseball is a game of tradition. And, part of that has become singing a particular song -- badly, loudly and enjoying every minute of it, not listening to another lame rendition of a patriotic song.
What do you all think? Should they mess with the seventh inning stretch that way?
