A few things...
1) For those of complaining about them playing Sweet Caroline, haven't you heard of the HILARIOUS thing they do? They put up on the big screen, "And now something for you Red Sox fans!" and they play a bit of it, and then they do another HILARIOUS record scratch and say "NOT!! and start playing Thank God I'm a Country Boy. It's embarrassing and appalling and every time I'm at a game I pray to God they don't do it. They also sometimes do the same thing with New York, New York when the Yankees are in town.
2) The crowd in my section was quite amiable and there were no fights and no bad language. I'm pretty sure that's because in my section I counted 12 Orioles fans. And six of them were in my group. It was beyond ridiculous. When the Orioles scored or anything halfway decent happened, you couldn't even hear any cheers in my section except for my group. My Yankee fan friend was with me (in her Orioles shirt, trying to help us out) and she couldn't believe how many more Red Sox fans there were than there are Yankees fans when we go to those games.
3) I have to admit that it was a little exciting seeing Manny hit his 500th homerun, although I really would have rathered it had happened when the Orioles were winning 10-0 or something.
4) In addition to "Let's Go Red Sox" we also has to listen to cheers of "Beat L.A.!" all night. Which, I don't really follow basketball, so I thought they were chanting "B.L.A." all night until someone clued me in.
5) Melvin's throws looked bad all night long. They were all low or bouncing. I don't know if he's nursing an injury or if he's gun shy from the night before, but something needs to be done about that. If he's hurt, give him a rest for crying out loud.
6) Perhaps the biggest news of the night (my apologies to Manny) is that Brian Roberts finally changed his at bat music! I actually meant to mention it after I went to the game Wednesday but forgot. He's been going up to Hypnotize for YEARS. I don't recognize his new song, but it has that distinctive Christian rock/Creed-esque sound to it.
