Neil Diamond, singer-songwriter and one of the best-selling musicians of all-time, is the creator of one of West Virginia fans’ favorite songs…”Sweet Caroline.” Diamond performed the song at his home and changed the words to make it appropriate for the Coronavirus, singing, “Hands…washing hands…reaching out…don’t touch me…I won’t touch you….SWEET CAROLINE!”
In the version played at Mountaineer games, of course, West Virginia fans sing “Eat **** Pitt” at the end of each verse. Check out the song below and try not to say “Eat **** Pitt” during it:
