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.
I absolutely and completely agree with all of this in every particular. The anthem shouldn't have to be dressed up - it's the freaking national anthem.

(well, okay, I have issue with the part in that post where "prepared" is misspelled. But other than that, it's all good. )

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
