Ghost of Jack Norworth, please feel free to haunt Bud Selig

On November 15 of last year, this blog reported on a Major League Baseball press release detailing plans for a 100th-anniversary celebration of the song "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during 2008.

I saw no actual evidence of any special 100th-anniversary festivities this past season. Most notably, contrary to that press release, the All-Star Game's televised 7th-inning stretch featured Josh Groban singing "God Bless America", not a contest winner leading the crowd in "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."

Not that it should necessarily be a priority for the next President, but surely he can do something about this fairly easily.
