Not to sound like an old man, but the "Na, Na, Na" has special meaning for me because I was a kid when it became popular with the Sox and reminds me of being a 10-year-old again when I all had to worry about was why Wayne Nordhagen or Bill Nahorodny struck out in an important at-bat.

Also, I was fortunate enough to be there at Game 1 of the 2005 playoffs against Boston when former Cub great Matt Clement got his ass handed to him by our Sox.

As Clement was leaving the field when he was pulled, it was amazing to hear our Sox fans singing - in my case, screaming - the song along with everyone else.

It was as though the good fans of the South Side were saying "This is OUR turn, Red Sox Nation. Bleep you!"

In all honesty, if they don't play it now, it doesn't bother me that much. I just want the Sox to win. I would be upset, however, if they brought back DJ Joe Stephan (sp?) That was not good. At all
