Its a Red Sox tradition that is copied everywhere now.

Amy Tobey, whose job from 1998 to 2004 was to decide which music would be played at Fenway Park, told the Globe that she had noticed the song at other sports events and decided to try it over Fenway's speakers.

 

 

 

They did not originate it.

It holds a special place in my heart simply because it was played every night at the bar I went to most in Greenville, 519.  If you've ever been you know what I'm talking about.

It isn't nearly as bad as the over played techno song that seems to play in most college and NFL stadiums. Gamecock fans know what song I am talking about.

Oh and Seven Nation Army seems to be trending now too. Drives me crazy!

I don't know that it was copied everywhere... I think it is more of a coincidence that multiple teams around the country play it as a victory song. Same as multiple teams playing the "YMCA" or "Whoop There it is"... 

 

The Boston Redsox just made Sweet Caroline mainstream by winning World Series titles.. As many other fans have stated, Carolina has been playing Sweet Caroline after wins at home since before the Boston RedSox finally won a world series.

Sweet Caroline needs to go. Is it good? Yep. But since other teams use it, it has no originality or meaning. Not to mention we didn't even use it first.

What could the Panthers play as originality for Carolina??? Petey Pablo's Raise Up after a win?? Hahaha that would be hilarious to bring that song back..

I have season tickets in section 545 and it is always a great thing to sing Sweet Caroline after a win!

I wasn't at the game last sunday, but I notice the crowd was singing Sweet Caroline with the "oh oh oh" added. I know it's a tradition at red sox games. But do you think it will become a victory song at Bank of America Stadium whenever we win?

 

GO PANTHERS!!!!

 

Yes they do....and it is gay and lame.

It's always lame when you can't be original. I know the Red Sox didn't invite the idea of singing "Sweet Carolina" at games but they made it popular.

 

What I see what I hear a crowd signing this song, is a marketing department lost for ideas. "Hey guys, you see what song they sing in Boston? Let's sing that in Charlotte too". I hope they weren't up all night!  :thumbsd:
