Edmund Singing National Anthems at sports event (63* d) RE: Singing National Anthems at sports event 16 May 01


I have never believed that the National Anthem is sung at sporting events and the like to honor our nation. I believe it is part of the promotional package employed by the promoters of the event to clothe their event with a status beyond its real significance. I think it cheapens the Anthem to be so exploited.

Yes, and it drives me wild to see auto dealers display the largest flag they can buy in a cynical gesture at patriotism.
