Last night, as you all know, the Yankees decided as a tribute to the city of Boston they would play “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond after the third inning of the game.
This decision was met with various reactions.
Some people were horrified because they feel the song and its lyrics, which we’ve come to find out in recent years was written about a young Caroline Kennedy, seem a tad creepy. Others thought it was nice of the Yankees to do that sort of thing for their bitter rivals – I was one of those people. And then there were others who were angry that the Yankees would ever dare to play that song in their Stadium, thus, completely missing the point of why the Yankees did it in the first place.
