  • National Anthem at NFL Championship

    Martina McBride sang it STRAIGHT. No rolls or whatever. I like that.

    I would also like to see the players put their hand over their hearts while its being sung.

    I did notice particular players who did show proper respect though.

    Seems like the way the NFL can be the sideline thought police for so many things now, that they could get serious about player respect for that part of the game.

    Well at least she did not butcher the song like so many other like to do "to make it their own". The deal with some of the player's not showing any respect is unfortunately a sign of the times.

        It was good but her ending I didn't like. Sing it like it is written. Don't add Oh Yeahhhhh or monkey it up as some do!
        Stay Safe and Well Out There....

          You want to see respect and patriotism, watch a NASCAR race.

          I can count more singers I dislike singing our National Anthem, then those that do it right. Martina did a good job.

            I agree with Firemech in that NASCAR fans AND the drivers show more respect during the National Anthem than do athletes and fans at other sporting events.You can hear the singers and the crowd singing along whether or not some of us can carry a tune in a bucket.(BTDT enjoyed the Hell out of it)
            You could tell that Martina McBride was doing the song live instead of lipsynching to it because her breath was showing with each word she sang.So many do the song with respect but so many also try to make it "theirs' by adding their own touches which I feel does show disrespect to the Anthem.And yes,I'm afraid that I have to include Ted Nugent in that when he adds his riffs to it.Doesn't he know how uncomfortable it is to hold the position of attention and a hand salute during the National Anthem,especially when it's 15 degrees before the windchill is added?
            One thing I do disagree with is who's gonna win.The choice is between one team of damn Yankees and another but I'm backing the Packers this year.
