Stop using "Buttercup"

The song played in the 7th inning is a useless piece of drivel. A song that is purely chosen because it is easy to sing along with the chorus, with no current thought to the lyrics "you build me up just to let me down" and "Don't break my heart" and "I run to the door, I can't take any more. You let me down again" 

This should stop right away and a fan contest where we can vote on the next song is in its place.


The Fans hate the song and only sing along because of its repetitve lyrics, stop trying to force a tradition on the fans. We are not Boston we don't need the catchy song for the fans... Just win and that is enough.

-- Side note: we haven't made the playoffs since the song has been chosen.

      The message of the song is one about collapse. Optimism, aggression, determination. These seem more suitable themes for sport. Not having your heart broken.

      If we're going to sing a song in the 7th inning, it shouldn't be a song about continually being let down by the object of our affections. It should be a song that supports the team in some way,

      Just an awful song for a baseball game. Doesn't sound like a song a winning team should play.

      It's a terrible song. It's just setting up for failure.
