Just read a very good piece in the Washington Post, written by a man who refuses to stand when they play God Bless America at the ballpark. Did I mention he’s a Methodist minister?
And it brings to mind a day a long time ago, when my son, Josh, was around 3 years old. We were at some sort of function where they played the Star Spangled Banner. Josh looked up and said . . .
“DAD!!!! They’re playing the baseball song!!!”
And I knew the kid was gonna be all right.
My kids would have said, “They are playing the NY Rangers song!”
