I didn't have to wonder long about Tynan. The next day's New York Times had a big story on the singer, in which he revealed that he's moving to Boston!
Of course, now there's all sorts of speculation that the Irish Tenor member might switch sides and sing "God Bless America" at Fenway Park.
Not so surprisingly, Red Sox Nation is not exactly happy that he's coming to town. "No Tynan. Please," say the guys from Surviving Grady. And Mighty Quinn Media Machine is even more adamant about not having Tynan switch sides:
I hope the Red Sox don't get some kind of crazy ideas about letting him sing at Fenway Park. The Sox have had plenty of fine musicians at Fenway, like James Taylor and Dropkick Murphys, belting out the tunes. There are plenty of ways the Sox can stick it to the Yankees, but I hope they don't think that bringing in Tynan for "God Bless America" is a good idea. Is Tynan truly a bigot? I don't know for sure, but he's gotten too much bad publicity recently for this to be anything but a silly publicity stunt should he be invited to sing at Fenway.Anything that would bring Red Sox Nation angst is fine with me. So part of me would like to see Tynan sing at Fenway, just to make Boston fans uncomfortable. Sing it, Ronan!
I just don't want anybody in Boston to talk about trading musicians. I have zero interest in hearing the creepy "Sweet Caroline" at Yankee Stadium, that's for sure!
What do you think? Tell us about it!
