Edit: I'm going to visit wrigley field in june for the first time. I grew up watching them cubbies play afternoon games at wrigley when i had chicago station at home before TNT took over. Wont be the same without harry carey singing "take me out the ballgame" during 7th innning stretch though.
True it isn't the same, but there's something to be said for the special celebrity guests that are now singing it. Think about it:
We've had Jeff Gordon call Wrigley Field, "Wrigley Stadium"
Ozzy sing "Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks, I don't know what I'm supposed to do"
And Mike Ditka sing it so fast he was finished before the pipe organ was halfway through the song.
