Gathering an army - true Patriots required

OK - I can't be the only Sox fan in shock right now...

I am watching ESPN's Sunday night game... the Washinton Expo's make a pitching change in the 7th inning... and they start playing Sweet Caroline... complete with crowd (!) participation at the appropriate points...

Was I being daft thinking this was only a Boston thing - is Neil Diamond, after year's of rebuffing the Sox, going to appear at RFK to sing live...?

I think we need to raise an army of Patriots to invade the PA box at RFK to show him who is boss - who is with me?

Don't get your knickers in a twist! Imitation of the Fenway Faithful is the sincerest form of flattery.

Aside from that, it's just plain fun!

I'm a lifelong Sox fan from Boston -- living in D.C. for 30 years now -- happy to have Major League ball here (Nats season ticket holder) -- watch the Sox on MLB Extra Innings.

As far as I'm concerned, replicating All Things Fenway here in Washington would be ideal!

Hey washsox - we could trade Julian Tavarez to the Nationals if that would help? And now that I think of it, that big green wall in center is suspicious as well...

It was just one of those... did I hear right moments - the Nationals will be singing take me out to the ballpark in the 7th inning stretch next!

Actually, they DO sing Take Me Out to the Ballgame during the 7th inning stretch -- right after God Bless America. So, that's more derivative than flattering, I guess.

Anyway, we're really looking forward to MLB finally deciding which pigeon gets to buy the team for $450 Million. Then, at least, the owner can begin to put a new stamp on the franchise. I expect some original ideas mixed with imitation of the best from other franchises -- and, I'd be happy if Sweet Caroline is part of that!

If you go, make sure you take a 3,079 Miles banner with you or wear a t-shirt or something!
