Neil Diamond Honors Boston With Surprise Sweet Caroline Performance At Red Sox Game!

Filed under: Music MinuteInspirationViolenceBaseball

Despite all of the horror and tragedy the city of Boston has endured this week, its people have continued to show their incredible resolve, unity and perseverance throughout it all!

Friday's terrifying, extended manhunt for marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev ultimately forced the Red Sox's game against the Kansas City Royals to be postponed until last night, when both teams banded together with the spectators to collectively pay tribute to all of the brave first responders who risked their lives to help the victims, as well as all those affected by the senseless acts of violence.

What no one was expecting, however, was Neil Diamond to hop an impromptu flight from El Lay to Boston with the specific intention of appearing at the game to perform his classic Sweet Caroline, which Boston fans are known to belt out during the seventh inning stretch!

And right before the eighth inning, that's exactly what the iconic singer did!

Ch-ch-check it out for yourself (above)!

Yankees Play Sweet Caroline In Honor Of Boston, We Got Chills!

Filed under: InspirationSad SadViolenceBaseballScary!

The rivalry between NYC and Boston has always been fierce, and it's been around forever.

The best part about it, though, is that it doesn't mean anything at all in times of need! In fact, we begin to realize that the rivalry is more like that between siblings, not between enemies!

To highlight that, the Yankees have done something incredible — last night at their game they played Sweet Caroline in honor of their rivals in Boston to show them that they have the support and everything they could ever need from NY in a time of crisis.

Honestly, when we watched the video (above) and see all the Yankees fans singing along, we got chills!

Tragedies are awful and will always be awful, but we are always in the end inspired by the response of humanity!

For more information on the whole ordeal, HERE's what we know — and please donate blood. Donate time. Donate money.

Boston needs everyone!

Sweet Caroline Dropped From Penn State Game Days

Filed under: Music MinuteFootball

neil diamond song sweet caroline taken from penn state game day playlist

Neil Diamond's song Sweet Caroline will no longer be played at Penn State football games.

It was a common song in their game day playlist but many people believe they dropped it because of the lyrics "touching me, touching you."

Penn State is obviously denying that as the reason. Associate athletic director Greg J. Myford said the lyrics were discussed but that wasn't the real reason it was dropped, saying in a statement:

"Sweet Caroline has been brought up in recent years as to whether or not it should remain a part of the playlist. We hear from fans each year on whether or not we should continue it, given that it happens to be played in so many other professional and collegiate venues and has no real origination here at Penn State."

So Penn State just happened to decide right now to update their playlist.

We guess it's as a good a time as any to change things up.

The old system at Penn State is tarnished, things need to change if the school wants to survive.

Do U think that Penn State made the right call by dropping the song??
