This Week in MLB Trolling: The Neil Diamond Edition
The San Diego Padres aren't exactly known for their rabid fan base or home-field advantage.
However, the Boston Red Sox have a notoriously devoted following, similar to the Cubs, Cardinals, and Yankees in that they have fans in every MLB city.
The Padres were hospitable to a fault, even attempting to simulate the Fenway experience by cranking up the Sweet Caroline in the eighth inning.
The Padres aren't even trying to pretend like they have a home crowd. The karaoke song in the middle of the eighth is Sweet Caroline.— Chris Cotillo (@ChrisCotillo) August 25, 2019

That's right Red Sox fans, you've been Rick Rolled.
Well, it's a pretty standard bait-&-switch that replaces something expected with the seminal Rick Astley Never Gonna Give You Up video from 1987.
And it's never not funny.
See, even Neil seems pleased, and his song was victimized.
Of course, there's always a few rotten apples that spoil the bunch.
That Hitler is such a wet blanket.
