POLL: Readers Give Resounding "NO!" To Nixing 'Sweet Caroline' At Fenway

Final results to our latest FenwayNation Poll show an overwhelming negative reaction to 'deep-sixing' the singing of "Sweet Caroline" before the bottom of the eighth inning at Fenway Park. As the chart shows, almost four in five readers (79%) come down on the side of keeping the Neil Diamond standard. Interestingly, 8% want to scrap any signing of anything during that time at Fenway—while 6% favor switching out "Sweet Caroline" for the Dropkick Murphys tune, "Shipping Up to Boston". About as many (7%) would opt for ditching "Sweet Caroline" for some other ditty. Apparently, though, the people have spoken. It's "So good!, So good!, So good!" for the foreseeable future.
