I wouldn't mind if the game ends, the three stars are announced, and the players go to the locker rooms and change. I understand the stick salute was something started after the lockout, but I don't see the big deal anymore. And the winning song - interesting, but I kind of like the say Yankees games end - with NY, NY in the background. I don't see a salute in the other sports nor is there a winning song (at least I don't believe). Perhaps with Jagr moving on the tradition can change.
Actually, "winning songs" are pretty common - especially in baseball. The Cubs and Red Sox play specific songs after wins and there are probably a few other teams that do as well.
Anyway, to the original point, Sweet Caroline is associated with the Rangers now for alot of people, so it's probably here to stay.
i dont remember the exact name of the song but what about that song , that 1 guy made about NY a year ago and they aired it on MSGNY a bunch of times , i had it on my ipod but its presumed dead at this point , lol.
Is it so hard for a fanbase to adopt its own signature song that people will recognize and sing along to, yet hasn't been claimed by countless other teams (Sweet Caroline) or every adolescent girl in the country (Don't Stop Believing)?
