|Life'll Kill Ya|
My fellow Americans,
I say this as someone with a music degree, a NASCAR fan and as a veteran- I'm sorry, but (at sporting events, in particular) we Americans have a nasty habit of staging the most tacky, schmaltzy, tasteless, jingoistic performances of any national anthem known on the face of this earth. It's an awful embarrassment.
Friends and neighbors, this is how you do a national anthem:
...and the fans stay in the same key as the singer!
Okay, yes, their team might have lost the Stanley Cup.
And yes, regrettably, some of them might not have handled the loss very well...
But those Canadians- they sure know how to do a national anthem.
