There’s nothing quite like a botched national anthem.
Sunday’s effort by someone from the Eli Young Band in Kansas City ranks right up there with the very worst I’ve seen. The best part about the clip is how unforgiving the Kansas City crowd is with him.
He screws up the song, and they kill him. (Note one of his buddies tries to whisper him the words.) After some serious awkward silence, the guy starts again, screws it up even more, so the crowd lets him have it even more. Finally, the poor guy gets to the finish line and he gets a big cheer.
As Americans, we’re forgiving people. (Just try not to screw up the anthem.)
