Re: MNF: Star Spangled Banner

If she would have just tried to sing the anthem and did a bad job that would have been one thing and the booing would have been uncalled for. She tried to jazz it up and then sang like crap so she gets booooooooooooooooood. Heck, I even bood at home.

Re: MNF: Star Spangled Banner

I thought it was fine (not great) until the last verses...then it went downhill very fast. Like a Mack Truck that sideswipes a Vespa.

Did she deserved to be booed? Probably...I probably would have have laughed afterwards more than booed, but that's me.

Oh, and I've only heard of her because my wife bought her CD...which is total crap, and she doesn't even listen to it anymore.

Agreed, up until she decided to sex up the national anthem she was just another not so great anthem singer (it is a tough piece to sing well). Those last 30 seconds or so are horrible. Beyond horrible. Sean Taylor coming free on a backside blitz horrible.

Re: MNF: Star Spangled Banner

OK, she didn't exactly pull off a stellar performance, but to boo her is just uncalled for. First off she was "trying" to sing the National Anthem. Secondly, she was a hispanic singing during Hispanic Heritage month (or whatever it's called). We all talk about how disrepsectfull it was for her to "chop" up the Anthem like that, but it is also disrespectfull to boo right afterwards, regardless of the performance. I am sure that most of us understand that she was the one getting boo'd and not the Anthem or Hispanics themselves, but not everyone knows that. Some people could have taken the boos the wrong way. At first, I did.

To get to the point, 2 wrongs do not make a right. If you want to disapprove while still showing respect after a bad Anthem performance, just stand there in complete silence. The point will be taken.

Reasoning: Naturally, right after an Anthem performance the crowd cheers. A boo is the complete opposite it sounds as if you totally disagree with the song, the performance, and everything about it. Silence says, "I disaprove of the performance, but I am still going to show repect for my Anthem."

Alright I'm done nit picking. I am bracing myself for those who disagree, but I am sure that none of those who do have a military background either.

Pretty much the whole thing was out of key. I was horrified watching it. Although I do have to admit to being surprised by the severity of the reaction she received. Poor girl.

Well I understand, which is why I was torn about it. She definitely deserved it, but how do you boo after the national anthem? I think the right thing to do would have been to salute the flag with my right hand and pelt her in the face with a tomato or shoe with my left.
