God Bless America…

…should not be played at sporting events. Even more I should not be asked to stand up for the singing of it. Being in St. Louis, I looooove the Cardinals. And I will continue to go to games and have a great time. But I don’t think that something with a religious affiliation should be played. If there is a Christian night at the ballpark (which they do) then fine, I can understand and would expect that kind of thing. But not in a situation when there are 45,000ish people of all different religions, ethnic groups, and backgrounds in general who came together for the love of baseball and their hometown team. So, I will continue to stay seated during that song, and stand when the national anthem is played. Go Cards!

 

It was a gorgeous night for a game.
