    That song seems so fucking gay... (as appose to watching the All Star Game I know)


    I just don't get why so many people cream their pantys every time that song is played??

    Did I miss something?

    Song they played in Boston. Became some kind of tribute to marathon bombings.

    Yes, its a tradition to play that game in the 8th inning in Boston at Fenway. It has become very popular..

    The red sox love it cause people actually stay longer in blowout games, *and spend more money on drinks, waiting for the song, before leaving.

    Neil Diamond is from Brooklyn though...

    In Boston, everyone's sister is named Caroline, and they all fuck their sisters.

    It's the 7th inning stretch and it is for all the pink hats. You know all the chicks who go to games to drink beers with their girlfriends and annoy their husbands/boyfriends with moronic questions about what is going on in the game.

    This, I don't know why they didn't say it was Boston tradition, I've never heard it done at another park yet they called it a baseball tradition.

    No, it is not played during the 7th inning stretch. It is played between the top and bottom of the 8th. Its been a Fenway tradition for about 15 years.

    Didn't know I was a supporter. Must have won one of the contests. Should actually pay for it too.

    I guess I will have to find myself an avatar too. Pretty big decision there.

    Thanks! I appreciate it. Didn't know I had a fan. Or do I come off so pathetic that it was a pity gift.
