New York Yankees And Their Fans Are Totally a Wonderful Class Act

Any Red Sox fan worth their salt knows they always play Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" at the bottom of the third inning during home games.
A very nice gesture at the Yankees game last night. 

I'm not sure how that tradition got started, but what the hell. It's awesome.

Last night, at a New York Yankees home game, they did the same to honor Boston and the city's response to the marathon bombing

As Jon Stewart said this week, New York and Boston have had a long, long rivalry, but its a sibling rivalry.

When Neil Diamond himself got wind of what happened in Yankee Stadium, he tweeted:

"Thank you for playing "Sweet Caroline" for the people of Boston. You scored a home run in my heart. With respect, Neil.
