The best part about him is that the crowd drowns him out.
i agree on Amirante. the way this rodriguez guy sang the anthem last night... it just wasnt right... plain and simple: i didnt like it.
the only thing i dislike more than amriante and rodriguez singing the anthems is when they get 5 castrated servicemen giving a gospel impression of the us anthem...
best us anthem i've ever heard was this afican-american recording artist (dont know his though
...) who did it for the wolfpack in hartford the first couple of years... even though i am not american, this guy gave me goose bumps... just his voice and pitch... just wow... none of that fake extending letters or end of sentences... just... wow
