    I'm all about patriotism and all that but singing "God Bless America" in the 7th inning is getting kind of old and seems kind of phony. When are they going to go back to "Take Me Out to the Ball Game?" 90% of the time, the friggin singer goes off pitch anyway. We sang the old song for 100+ years (OK, lots less than that) and all the sudden we had 911 and everyone had to sing about their patriotism. What the hell do the Jays sing?

    It's a game; not a sport.

    I always go to get my last beer during the 7th inning so I don't care what they play.

    i watched the end of the brewers/cardinals game yesterday and it was mildly entertaining. and then i saw that the card's third base coach has so much fricking time on his hands that this is how he writes shit:

    Take me out to the ballgame can only be sung in venues that still allow peanuts, otherwise it is hypocrisy. Also what is the business of teams swapping leagues?

    So now what used to only happen in the All Star Game and the World Series, inter league play, now happens at a regular basis. Thank you Houston for that.

    Those poor fans have to have some kind of fun. The team sure isn't going to provide it.
