National Anthem

Continuing in our theme of posts dealing with my trip to Iowa:

During the initial playing of the national anthem on Friday, the sound system cut out somewhere around "rocket's red glare," but the fans in attendance picked it up almost without hesitation and finished it off strong. It was actually pretty cool to be a part of. I think an interesting idea at a sporting even would to plan for the fans to sing the national anthem. It's never done, and this proves that it can work. Have someone up there to get things started and then hand it off to the crowd. It would be memorable at least.
