    Heard today that Carlos Delgado is protesting the war in Iraq by staying in the dug out for the National Anthem. It has been kept very quiet so far, but the NY papers reported it this am - Toronto is playing the Yanks this week.

    What do you think about his protest

    How do you think the fans in NY will react

    I don't think we should "force" anyone to be patriotic, but I also don't think it will help his popularity either. He has the right to free speech, but the fans also have the right to free speech to boo him if they don't like it. It will be interesting to see how the fans react to it now that it is being talked about.

    Who really cares what Carlos Delgado thinks or protests. I not only predict boos but other things thrown at him as well. I wonder if some of these people would ever fight for anything except their right to come over here and get rich playing a game.

    FYI, it is not the National Anthem, but rather the seventh inning rendention of "God Bless America" done at some ballparks. He doesn't make a scene, just sits in the dugout and then comes out and plays. No big deal, discent is ok, we all don't have to think alike. Go Carlos!

    That's what makes this country so great. Freedom! I favor Delgado's quiet protest. He's entitled to his opinion.
