    I think we found a White Sox fan.

    Well, by the time we have been around long enough to have learned all those verses, we have become too old to remember all those verses, and, also, “Why did I come into this room?”

    I always thought it was " Jose can you see…."

    Maybe it’s not us. Maybe it’s the song.

    Because we’ve allowed people like Rosanne Barr tear apart the song and disrespect it and various “artists” prolong the song for ten minutes. Too many people have disrespected it for people to care about it anymore!

    Evidently.. only the tune has to be followed. Free speech means insert your own jingle as you see fit.

    Were so streaming with gravy…”

    A multi-octave nearly impossible to sing composition they matched to a POEM written by Key, which, amazing how many sing the anthem way off key, and don’t know the words, so they’re only mumbling incoherently to boot…

    I am in total agreement with PianoGuy24 It really is outrageous. This anthem should be sung as intended (which my generation learned in grade school). With Respect!

    ^Almost every NASCAR event starts with an ear and nerve shattering rendition, and of course a prayer for all 43 starters to win.

    Oh, people care. The incident with Roseanne got people so riled up, complete strangers sent death threats to Rosanne’s children. They had to have police protection for a while after that. She had later explained that she started out on a wrong note. She didn’t think she could just start over, so kept going and tried to pass it off as a joke rendition.

    A few years ago, Roseanne got the opportunity to redeem herself and sing it at a little league baseball game. Her now adult kids were so traumatized by the aftermath of “the incident,”, they begged her not to do it. She did, and hired a vocal coach to help her sing it properly.
