The nightly rendition of “Sweet Caroline” following the seventh inning was just a little bit sweeter on opening night at Fenway Park.
Singer/songwriter Neil Diamond made a surprise appearance during the Red Sox’ season opener against the Yankees on Sunday night, belting out his hit “Sweet Caroline” as the Fenway faithful sang along.
Wearing a dark sports jacket with the message “Keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn” written on the back, the 69-year-old Brooklyn native connected with the fans who regularly use his song as a late-inning rallying cry.
How’d Diamond’s performance go?
In short: “So good. So good. So good.”
Neil Diamond was born on January 24th, 1941.
1 + 24 +2+0+1+0 = 28 = his personal year (from January 24th, 2010 to January 24th, 2011)
28 year + 3 (March) = 31 = his personal month (from March 24th, 2010 to April 24th, 2010)
31 + 4 (4th of the month on Sunday April 4th, 2010) = 35 = his personal day = So far, so good.
