Bob Uecker

I'm a Cubs fan. Always have been, always will be most likely. We Cubs fans have our sacred traditions, among these is the singing of "Take Me Out To the Ball Game" during the seventh inning stretch. And a Wrigley, we use "Root, root, root for the Cubbies" rather than "Home Team." Variation from this is not tolerated... usually. But tonight, Bob Uecker, long time announcer for that team that plays at Wrigley North (otherwise known as Miller Park), was the guest singer tonight, and when he got to that part of the song, he sang:

I'll root, root, root for the Brewers... You do the same for the Cubs.

In this case, it's not only something that I'd tolerate, but in fact, I find it quite classy. I've always felt that I have more respect for a Cardinals or Brewers fan who is true to their team than the Lincoln Park Trixieswho claim to be Cubs Fans. So... Rock On Bob Uecker.
