    Still quicker than when Bleeding Gums Murphy did it at a Springfield Isotopes game.

    Yes, forget the little girl from the trailer park with the country music twang that always sings for the Red Wings home games. (Double that if a Canadian team is in town and “Oh Canada” gets the Nashville interpritation) I would rather have the barber shop quartet that flies through the thing at breakneck speed.

    At least they didn’t say é, è, ê, ë, ē, ė, ę, ě, ȇ, ȩ, ə, ɘ, ᶒ, ḕ, ḙ, ḛ, ḝ, or ẽ

    I agree with Herb – it’s just plain disrespectful.

    Unfortunately, it seems that it’s primarily African-American singers who think that they have to carry the word “free” an octave higher than it should be.
    Although “Star Spangled Banner” was written by Francis Scott Key, the tune comes from “Anacreon in Heaven,” an 18th-century English drinking song.
    I would be very happy if we changed our national anthem to “America the Beautiful,” our true national anthem.
    Why have a national anthem that merely commemorates an obscure battle that happened nearly 200 years ago when we can have a much nicer anthem (which is much easier to sing) that commemorates America’s beauty?

    It’s actually a crime in the Philippines to sing their national anthem badly.

    Well when you have a battle that could have wrecked Baltimore and came close to burning down the White House,the War of 1812 was no hiccup.

    Another vote for America the Beautiful. Forget the war anthems and why is Herb SITTING!????

    The White House was burned during the War of 1812. Before that war, it was a sandstone building. It was painted white to cover up the smoke damage. However, it was called “The Executive Mansion” until Teddy Roosevelt changed the name in the early 20th century.

    I can’t stand singers who insist on adding unnecessary (and too often pathetic) ruffles and flourishes to the national anthem. The singer’s ego trip is not why the song is sung. It’s hard enough to sing; leave it be, you bloody narcissists!

    Didn’t someone say if you can sing, then sing, but if you cain’t then vocalize and hope they don’t hear you screwing up. So many wannabes do that now days and since the public is either stoned, deaf or the girls is nearly nekid no one
    cares.

    As far as I’m concerned, the Star Spangled Banner is our true national anthem. It would also help if we sang all four verses instead of just the first one.
