    This cop's motto? To protect and to serenade, probably.

    After the singer who was supposed to perform the National Anthem at a recent college basketball game between West Virginia University and the University of Kansas was stuck in traffic, unable to sing at the game, an unlikely hero stepped up to save the day with unbelievable grace -- university police officer, Carlton Smith.

    The officer, who's competed on "American Idol," told "The Bob Huggins Show" that he's sung the National Anthem for a crowd before, however this time, he was barely given any notice and was told he'd need to fill in about five minutes before showtime.

    Nice job.

    What does the crowd holler at the 1:13 mark?

    There's a trick to singing the SSB, assuming you know the words.
    Start low, like as low as you can go. You'll never clear the high notes otherwise.

    This has been a public service announcement from the singing potroast.

    Every time I go to a hockey game, I cringe during the anthem/s. I'm expecting a mistake. I dunno, I just feel bad for the singers when they forget the lyrics or hit a sour note. Why the hell do I get performance anxiety for them?

    At least they sometimes let the crowd sing it.

    Oh man, forgot about that one. You just know she wanted to stay down forever after that fall.


    If you can't remember the words, just moan 'em!

    Stuck in traffic? No. Ass clenching, pit stains to the belt stage fright is what happened here, everyone. Cease your collective torment, the singer is weakdick.

    Yep! He was quite the hottie back in the day, too.

    Loved how he refused to take part in 2005 OD ceremonies because some twit had written this really gay song about how the WS win was for all the guys who never won a ring, like Yaz & Pudge: "I had a great career and I don't need anyone telling me this makes up for a damn thing." :snicker:
