    7th Inning Stretch should have "Take me out to the ballgame" and that's it IMO

    They used to play just "Take me out to the ballgame" during the 7th inning of MLB games and it was great. Now, they always play "God Bless America," while Take me out to the ballgame has taken a complete backseat.

    If people like the tune God Bless America, well bless their hearts. But the 7th inning stretch of Major League Baseball games should feature Take me out to the ballgame and that's it in my humble opinion.

    I believe the Reds only play "God Bless America" on Sunday, with "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" every other day.

    That is correct.

    They sing it every game at Yankee Stadium. I am not a fan, mostly because I have just never liked the song from a musical standpoint. And it genuinely bothers me that people stand and put their hands over their heart for it. You're only supposed to do that for the national anthem; it belittles the gesture if people start blindly applying it to other songs.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Yeah, how dare people show some emotion and choose to be patriotic during a different song about our country.

    Yep, that's exactly what I meant.

    I don't go to Reds games to be patriotic. I go because I like baseball. I don't want to hear "God Bless America" during games, personally, but that doesn't necessarily mean I have a problem with people being patriotic. If I say that I don't want to hear any biblical psalms during the game, does that mean I'm anti-religion? There's a place for all that stuff, and I'd prefer it if a Reds game weren't one of them.

    Do you think they are over doing it? I think it can be overdone but in New York...after 9/11...it seems like something that is not going to stop. Not for a long while.

    Not more or less patriotic than anyone else....but you have some with the love it or leave it attitude that make you feel Un-American if you do not like it.

    If you want to discuss patriotism (or lack thereof), I suggest you move it over to the Peanut Gallery.
