Listen, I am all in favor of patriotism and supporting the red, white, and blue. BUT...there is one thing that people should NOT do to show their support.
Never let your friends convince you that you've got a good voice. Don't let them tell you that. Ever! Under any circumstance.
Now granted, most individuals would choose not to sing the National Anthem at a sporting event, regardless what level. Unless, you have friends who are liars.
A girl just performed the National Anthem at our women's basketball game, and sight unseen, she might have thought she was Whitney Houston (pre-cocaine).
It was delusional at best. Pitchy the whole time. And extremely too long.
You know what? Good for her. She's got balls to sing in front of a crowd.
I'm gonna be less critical in 2011.
