    I will always stand
    I've been in the stands when a foreign has been played--and I stand

    but it does seem strange to have to stand for the anthem at a AA ball game

    and you know plenty of the people pissy with that QB don't know the fucking words

    It's so strange to me that the Anthem is played at sporting events, it had to start with money---someone paid to have some kind of ceremony or for a recording artist to sing it to promote their music. It's not played anywhere else.

    I love CCR--loved them since I was little (my uncle was a huge fan)--this mofo hit a homer with this damn song

    It started being played before baseball games circa WWI, waned a bit, and then started up again during WWII.

    Most of the NFL games I see on t.v. go to commercials during the anthem. Which shows you how much the league and the networks care about it....
