A message to the fans

To anyone who was at the Sabres game, good on ya to cheer along during the anthem. Seems too often you see people boo when something like that happens.

For anyone who didn't see it...

Priceless.

Slewidge has sung the anthem this year maybe 10 times? He's stepped aside as the full-time guy.

Yeah, the fans were pretty good-natured about it.

It was actually a pretty entertaining game to be at in terms of the atmosphere.

Nerves get the best of us - or she just doesn't speak a word of French. Must say not a fan of her voice though.

It was a good game tonight at the arena & the girl was cute that made a little mistake during the anthem but everyone just kept singing. The Sens I thought outplayed Buffalo but they kept hanging around, it would have been a good game for Bishop to steal. Can't seem to catch NJ.

Who the hell was she? Not attractive one single bit(Which seems to be a big factor in singers) No one important and horrible voice.

She was kinda cute, nothing special but maybe a 5.5 or 6 on the scale.

No way I'd go out of my way to talk to her in a bar.

I'm sure she's not losing any sleep over your lack of interest in her.

Thought the fans reacted well...mostly chuckles and then kicked up the crowd singing... She seemed to really be into it and lost her place.

I wouldn't go out of my way to talk to her at a bar, but I don't think I'd be turning her down if she approached me. And she's got the redhead thing going for her, so maybe a little feisty and the whole mystique of the carpet matching the drapes haha. But yeah, she was just alright. And her voice was not something you'd expect of a singer doing the anthem at sports event in front of 19,000 people on HNIC.

Can't be as bad as Konopka's sister. She will live on in infamy along side the Spartan.

You can't take anyone who was born with the last name 'Konopka' that seriously.

I like her looks and voice. Reminds me of Natalie Maines from the Dixie Chicks. She showed a good attitude in taking this mishap with a smile.

Too much of that awful modern R&B diva crap in her singing. Simplify, please! I like Zooey's style, but I admit it's not for everyone either:

(camera is shaky at first, and she starts a bit too slow, but keep watching)



Singing is not an Olympic sport, it's the emotions that matter!

One thing francophone really appreciate is effort well over perfect results. It's apparent that she was trying to sing the French part phonetically and for the work she put into it, from my standpoint, she deserved the rousing cheers she got. I'm glad she took it in stride, didn't lose her composure and the fans responded well. I thought she did a very good job. Well done Miss Holloway !!!

I give her full credit for sticking with it and not getting flustered when she flubbed that line. Not sure I could keep my composure after buggering up like that in front of 20,000, with a couple of hundred thousand more watching at home.

Her name is Tara Holloway, I went to high school with her. Circa 1999. Anyone remember Confed? Anyways, I think they were trying to give a music artist the spotlight. I know she has an album out w/ a video. Not that that means anything. It'd be bad if she forgot the English part but I often forget the French parts too. Haha.

I only know the middle part of the anthem in French. Even so, I don't know the words so much as I know what sounds I'm supposed to be making with my mouth

Funny thing is she could have just looked straight ahead as they have the lyrics scrolling at the opposite end of the singer. Thought the crowd did well to help out though and she got back on track!

It seems like Lyndon is always replaced on Saturday nights.

I don't like it. I hope its Lyndon himself who is stepping back a bit and not Gower mucking things up.

I don't know if anyone else noticed. But his voice seemed to have changed the last couple of times I heard him live.
