Singing “Take Me out to the Ballgame” during the seventh-inning stretch at Wrigley Field on Monday was a man familiar to Chicago fans, Mike Ditka.
Today's 7th inning stretch at Wrigley will be performed by…..

The Super Bowl-winning coach’s rendition was highly anticipated to not only Chicago Cubs’ fans, but to anyone who remembered his original performance.
This one went just as well.

Naturally, that drew many responses on Twitter.
Oh wow was Ditka bad today. Classic.

I think the @Cubs were punishing the Brewers fans that came to Wrigley today by having Ditka sing the stretch.

I just heard Mike Ditka sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” at Wrigley Field and never before have I wished for death as I do now. I will never be able to un-hear that horror, no matter how hard I try.

It’s probably not the worst idea.
