Penn State won’t play ‘Sweet Caroline’ at football games

Penn State won’t play Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” at football games over concern regarding the song’s lyrics. Penn State is worried about perception — specifically the lyrics “touching you, touching me,” from the song — in light of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal that rocked the university and country.

Although “Sweet Caroline” has become a popular tune at Red Sox and Pitt football games, The Altoona Mirror confirmed that Penn State is removing the song from the football playlist for the upcoming season.

    This is what we as a nation have come to and things like this are just going to happen more and more, due to our politicaly correct society.
