Isn't that the franchise that is famous for pulling all sorts of stunts? I seem to recall they were the originators of "Vasectomy Night".

Also "Episiotomy Night", when they changed their name to the "Taints".

They're going by the Aints that night, aren't they?

*checks*

Indeed, lol.

A Night of Unbelievable Fun

Well, that's not very clever.

How about "A Night of Unbelievable Spectacle" instead?

What they used to sing before 9/11? "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" works just fine.

No doubt, you're right.
I was somehow thinking "God Bless America" was in there.

Wait, what? I'm way out of the loop as I haven't lived in the USA for over a decade, and haven't been to a baseball game there in maybe 15 years... Am I understanding you all correctly that they don't sing "Take Me Out To the Ball Game" in major league games for the 7th inning stretch any more??? They sing "God Bless America"???

Ok, that's a serious WTF for me. :-/

I guess I started this, so after a little research, I'll offer:

Post 9/11, most ballparks did "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch.
This went on for a number of years.
Over time, most ballparks have reverted back to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", with the possible exception of the Yankees.
Maybe some do both.

/I might be mistaken.

You are correct. As my dad always told me, Aint aint a word, so I guess its mythical.

I had box seats to "Irish Heritage Night", but was too hung over to go.
I had six tickets to "Zen Buddhist Night", but then realized that there was only one.

I am from Minnesota so I am getting a kick. Also minor league baseballs teams often do odd theme night to attract fans.

Yes, and the Yankees will have you arrested if you don't sing along to "God Bless America." OK, that's an overstatement. You'll be arrested if you try to use the restroom during "God Bless America."

Every game I've gone to they've done "Take me out to the ball game" but they jump right into the chorus.

I'm sick of God Bless America, and it has nothing to do with any of the lyrics. I hate how its being shoved down our throats and yes they play it at nearly every ball game for the seventh inning stretch. Quit telling people to take off their hats, put their hand over their hearts, and not allowing people to leave their seats. It is not our national anthem and should not be treated as such.

/also the song kind of sucks in general.

Here in Wisconsin we sing Take Me Out to the Ballgame. And then we sing Roll Out the Barrel.

I'm just trying to figure out to which "God" the song refers. (And to which America.) They never specify.

Seeing the uniforms, I really think they should use paper bags instead of hats.

You can't do "Aint's" without paper bags.

I watched a Brewer game a couple of weeks ago and some country star sang God Bless America. I believe they were playing the Astros in Houston.

I was at a Twins game about two weeks ago and we (they) sang "Take Me Out". I don't follow or attend baseball games particularly but I've never heard of this "God Bless America" thing either.
