I have long suggested on this board that the singing of the anthem at sporting events should never be performances but should instead be sung by those present. At PSU they run the lyrics on the rim video for all to sing and it is great.From my viewpoint, what Geno said is the BEST:
Auriemma said he has another idea. He would rather see UConn get rid of guest singers who come in to perform the national anthem. Instead, he said, UConn should have the band play the anthem, while everyone sings along.
The idea that people themselves will sing together is essential...like Sweet Caroline at a Red Sox game. It means so much more when it is truly participatory.
