Another Reason Not To Like The Yankees

Not content with inflicting that detestable “Gob Bless America” on their fans, they have to chain the exits so folks can’t leave while the dreck is being sung:

“God Bless America,” written by Irving Berlin in 1918, was played at big league ballparks throughout the country when baseball resumed after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. It was discontinued in some cities in following seasons but remained a fixture at Yankees games, at which security personnel and ushers use chains to block off some exits while it’s played.

The article is mainly about the fact that the Yankees are being sued by a fan who was ejected from the stadium for having the audacity to try and use the restroom while the song was being sung. Hopefully, he will wing his lawsuit…

  1. I’m pretty sure that violates some fire and safety codes as well as being improper imprisonment.

  2. This item reveals more about you than the Yankees. Keep digging.

  3. Yes, it reveals that I don’t like the song “God Bless America” – much preferring “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” – and that I think the Yankees have gone overboard in shoving the song done people’s throats…

  4. Hey digging supervisor (vanderleun)- you may enjoy the uber-patriotism of the yankees, but some people just like to go and watch a ball game, without all the over-the-top fromage, and have the liberty to pee when they need to.

  5. “…improper improsonment”
    Cruel and unusual punishment.
