Finally! I've never really understood why the anthem has to be sung at the beginning of every sports game. I know why it started way back when, but I always thought it was a bit out of place at a hockey or soccer game. Or any game (save for international competitions) for that matter.

Besides, I always thought America the Beautiful was a better song....

But if Dawn Wright is singing, I let her and only her sing because she belts like no other. She's the best.
I almost threw up in my own mouth when I read this.. she is the worst anthem singer.. Coach D is the Best.. they need to bring him back and 86 her...

Go Ducks!!

The opera guy they had the other night was a nice change of pace. Did he make the crowd sing along?

where I was sitting the crowd was singing from the beginning, but it did pick up when he stopped singing. The fans here are pretty good about singing along and not leaving them hanging.
