I thought it was awful. I was hoping to see more in-park coverage.

Default New stadium intro

They ditched the Pirates of the Caribbean-scored highlight montage in favor of some spoken narrated thing that I couldn't even understand because the audio was too soft. Major disappointment, as that video montage is one of the things I most look forward to when I attend games. I hope the new thing is an Opening Day aberration, but I worry it's not...

Yeah, they didn't get the anthem or the Bo Jackson first pitch live. Fail.

They actually had the anthem playing under the pre-taped Hawk/Stony open.

Kind of a weird TV production--lots of in-game interviews in the stands while the action was going on. I kinda figured they were doing more of that this year in an effort to sell the "fan experience", but I hope they can tighten it up a little.

Also, Dan Hayes...wow that was awkward.

Funny because I was recently talking about how the Sox have had that intro since 2005, so I thought a change was overdue. I agree with your disappointment though. If they were going to change it, couldn't they have put another dramatic music piece in there instead? It also seemed a little too slow in pacing. I'm sorry, but Home Run of the Century was more successful at getting me excited for the coming game and they haven't used that since 2004.

I think they even rolled it out earlier than that....I think late in the 2004 season.

I didn't like the new montage at all. Why fix something that obviously wasn't broken? I can't imagine people griped about it on the fan survey that went out last fall....

I thought whatever that was, was absolute garbage myself.

Regarding Dan Hayes....awkward is putting it mildly.

I wouldn't have minded an update with new music (not that it needed it) but the replacement thing was just boring. The exact opposite of what an intro video s supposed to accomplish.

Are we talking about that lip synced thing set to that awful Saliva song that ran on CSN before the game? That has to be an April Fool's Joke, right? Because I have seen people die before and that video still is probably the worst thing I will ever see in my entire life.

No, we're talking about the boring voiceover video they played on the scoreboard in place of the Pirates montage. The CSN video, while awful in its own right, is unrelated.

No, evidently they changed the montage at the stadium before the game. My brother was at the game and texted me about it. He was quite upset.
