    Pats lose the national anthem

    Steven Tyler? Really? The dude doesn't sing, he screams! I get the Boston/Aerosmith connection, but next time get someone who can sing on key!

    Quothe the Ravens, NEVER MORE!!!!

    Steven Smith? Don't you mean Steve Tyler?

    And yeah, Tyler isn't the greatest singer, but that was by far nowhere close to the worst National Anthem performance I have ever heard.

    The anthem was bad, but not as bad as bashing on someone with the wrong name.

    I would put up evidence of worse performances, but that would mean that I would have to go find them and probably hear them again. I'd rather just let you believe that you're right than do that to myself.

    I'm not going to go look them up, but Roseanne Barr and Carl Lewis had worse performances. And at least Tyler stuck to the basic melody, unlike Christina Aguilera, who just has to show off the golden pipes every time she sings the Anthem, which really detracts from the performance.

    It was awful, but nowhere near the bottom. That standard is pretty low

    Oops, sorry. I fixed it. Not an Aerosmith groupie.

    To clarify, I only bash on those with the wrong last names ... like you, Mr, Dorkman

    The worst national anthem I have ever seen was this past New Years day at the Vikings - Bears game at the dome. Can't find a video of it but it was BAD.

    Like I mentioned earlier, she was more interested in showing off the golden pipes than singing the song properly. She has an incredibly talented, beautiful voice, but more often than not she lets her talent get the best of her - she needs to learn the concept of "less is more."
