    OK, 9-11 was awful and we grieved as a nation and it was fitting to change our stretch for that season. But come on, it is 2007, why the hell are we still God Blessing America?
    Isn't it time we moved on?
  2. if we sing Take me out to the Ballgame before the bottom of the seventh, the terrorists have won

    The national anthem honors America. Singing GBA (what the kids are calling it) in the seventh is just piling on.

    Somewhere, Cracker Jack executives are shaking their heads.

    I'm usually a big fan of tradition, but this doesn't bother me.
    Paula Cole's flat singing bothers me, but not the song.

    God Bless America is shit anyway, shit as a song and shit as an idea. America the Beautiful is an infinitely better song if you need to go patriotic, but I agree there's no need for either in the seventh inning.

    The seventh-inning stretch should just be a loop of Ichiro's on-deck performance on the big screen in every stadium.

    Please, dear God, make this happen. I would increase my baseball attendance by a lot.

    I mentioned this in the office a little while ago, after the first few notes of Paula Cole's prompted the use of the mute button.

    I love Ichi -- waht is so great about his on-deck performance? I am not familiar.

    I'm tired of this also. Of course, it plays to the Fox dynamic.

    I usually make a point of being in the beer line then if I'm at the game, or changing channels if I'm watching on TV.

    I have converted sxy after our trip to Toronto last summer.

    He does the most amazing stretching ritual. It's incredibly sexy. Meow.

    I search YouTube like every week, hoping SOMEONE will record the thing. But no luck yet.
