In the movie Amadeus, there was a point where a reviewer listened to one of Mozart's pieces and sniffed that there were "too many notes". I'm like the reviewer when some of these folks sing the anthem. Too many syllables. And I hate the hand motions, too. This isn't a record deal tryout, this isn't a revival, it's a hockey game. Sing it and leave so we can cheer and the ref can drop the dang puck.

Of course, if it was my daughter singing and someone said that I'd throw a hissy fit because then it would be wonderful. ;-)
