I think it's a silly thing to do. At the Rangers games it's one thing. It's a norm, tradition at MSG, it's expected and accepted. Going elsewhere is completely different. You might think it's cool or just funny, but others may not. I don't care if you act like an ass all night, but to some people the national anthem is very important to them. It's a symbol of our country and many people are very proud to be Americans. Some people do have family at war and others have a deep respect for those fighting overseas in a war that, whether you are for or against it, is happening and all of the soldiers deserve our support. Disrespecting the National Anthem, to many, is seen as disrespecting all of those who gave their lives in all of the wars the US has fought in and those who are risking their lives overseas to fight a war that because of them you don't have to be in the desert fighting.
