Religion in sports

The NYPD ejected a fan from Yankee Stadium last night for trying to leave his seat to use the bathroom during the singing of God Bless America.

This is wrong for so many reasons that I don't know where to begin. Words fail me.

That is absolutely the most insane thing I've heard. (Today, at least.)

For so many reasons.

Why is a hymn so damn important at a baseball game?

Who appointed the Yankees to be the guardians of American culture and patriotism, anyway?

What happened to basic freedoms such as using a public bathroom when you need to?
