    Buck's reaction to the National Anthem

    Anyone catch the National Anthem before the Twins/Orioles game last night... particularly Buck Showalter's reaction to it?

    Buck Showalter Reacts to this National Anthem With a “WTF?”

    I laughed soo hard when I saw this because I thought the exact same thing.


    It's a huge pet peeve of mine when people absolutely butcher the National Anthem and to make it worse, the group singing last night couldn't hit their harmonies to save their soul.

    Just sing it the way it was should be sung.

    This is why I think they should just play the instrumental portion, and let the fans sing it. It may be off-key, but it can't be that much worse than the singers they bring in to butcher it. EDIT: And it will probably be much, much better.

    I'd agree, especially if they are spending money to bring in singers.
