Hey, that'd be fun to have an HFer sing the anthem in Columbus. Good luck with the audition!

Fun fact: Leo himself posts here on occasion.

He's not exactly hiding his identity, he posts as LeoWelsh!

As I've stated before, I'm not a fan of the anthem being performed before every sporting event; but, if it must be done at the Arena, I like Leo's straightforward and respectful version better than almost any other. And I agree that the natural development of shouting his name is exactly the kind of thing we want to see grow in Columbus as a local hockey tradition. Anyone else who sings it should be preparded, in advance, for it. It's not a sign of disrespect for them, just a part of what makes our hockey experience unique.
