    Sweet Caroline has got to go!

    As I write this, I'm listening to the Sox/Orioles game on Baltimore radio because WEEI is not carrying it. Coming back from commercial break after the top of the eighth, what do I hear the crowd singing to in the background? You guessed it. For some reason, I had the impression this was going away after the collapse. How presumptuous of me. Don't get me wrong, I do like the song, but I think it's time has come and gone as far as Boston baseball is concerned. Time to move on folks, it was fun while it lasted, but it's over. Play something else please, ten years is enough. Thx.!

    Not gonna happen, Exam. Old traditions die hard at Fenway.

    Truth, but it's not THAT old, only started in 2002 as far as I heard.. I had hopes, but looks like they are dashed.

    I understand that Sweet Caroline is now an intrinsic part of the Red Sox/Fenway experience, but, man, I am not a fan.  Makes me ashamed to be a pink hat.

    Now they're joking about fried chicken on Baltimore radio, I don't like this team. But we beat up on 'em 5-4. A 3-0 start for the Sox.

Posted by SpacemanEephus[/QUOTE] Especially when there are so many rock ANTHEMS by Boston that you could rock Fenway to after a win. "Dirty Water" is another one that I don't care for that much. Give me something that juices things up, and ROCKS! Tessie is good too, but I like something by Boston better. But Tessie would be infinitely better than Caroline or Dirty Water.

    The FO was going to remove Sweet Caroline since it was the apparent cause for the collapse but BDC's Georom convinced them otherwise. Cherrington tried all winter to trade Beckett as recommended but the other teams also demanded the Popeye's franchise in Kenmore Square.

    During the games at Fenway, pass out ballots for the All Star game and add a question about ditching Sweet Caroline. I doubt that fans want a change.

    No wonder there was a collapse, NYY have hijacked the song!

    Re: Sweet Caroline has got to go!

    There has been much use of the epithet 'pink hat' on this board.  But, the definitions of what exactly a pink hat is have been myriad and all over the place and quite confusing.

    I offer my method of determining a 'pink hat' and how to tell the difference between pink hat and non-pink-hat:

    Non-pink hat:  the person(s) at fenway silent or mouthing half-heartedly along during 'Sweet Caroline'.

    Pink-hat:  The person(s) at fenway singing along with "Sweet Caroline' at the top of their lungs.

    So many better options by Boston's own ...
    "Tessie," Dropkick Murphys.
    "Soadjerk," Buffalo Tom
    "Back in the Saddle," Aerosmith
    "More Than a Feeling," Boston

    Re: Sweet Caroline has got to go!

    I wonder if the Examiner wants the Orioles to ditch their "Thank God, I'm a Country Boy" after a decade of terrible baseball? I definitely see a direct correlation between the 8th inning song and a team's won-lost record. You would have to be blind not to make that logical deduction.
