The only song that should EVER be sung during the seventh inning

stretch at a baseball game is "Take Me Out To The Ballgame."

That is all.

4. I can answer that, I think....

WAY tired of the jingoism/exceptionalism/etc. that came to the fore after 9/11...prior to that Take Me Out to the Ballgame was the song of choice, now it is God Bless America.

P.S. I vote for changing the militaristic Star-Spangled Banner to America the Beautiful for our national anthem--who is with me?

5. As a Baltimore Orioles fan, no.

Nothing cooler than hearing Orioles fans shout "O!" when the song gets to, "Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave...."

9. Yep. Two of my least favorite things in the world are

religion and jingoism.

6. As a Brewers fan I must also say "no."

One must also sing "Roll Out the Barrell!"

10. When I was a kid, they played "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" during the 7I.S.

The only people who do TMOTTB right are drunken Cubs fans (I'm a Brewers fan, but I miss Harry, and I miss Ron Santo)

The only acceptable 7 I.S. tunes in modern America should be:

Roll Out the Barrel (see other post on this important subject)
God Bless America (I went there, dammit!)
-or-
Gangham Style!

11. Well, you've gotta be drunk to get through a

Cubs season most years. Sorry, Cubs fans.

12. This one?

Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Feed me some fat lies and ads that attack
I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the O-Man,
If he don't win, it's a frame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, Mitt's out
At the old ball game.
