  1. Hi Mitch…we were talking a bit about national anthems being sung before games and sporting events. My son and I agreed mostly about scraping the idea except for when a team is representing its country as citizens. Any professional hockey, basketball, or football teams have a blend of many nationalities that are not citizens of the country they represent. At NHL games, both the American and Canadian anthems are sung if cross border teams are involved. While this is going on, the food concessions are still humming along. Personally, I would see them scrap this tradition for the most part…I would save it for the Juniors or an Olympic team that is comprised of nationals. Your thoughts? This could be a hornets nest of sorts since some may perceive this as a slight against patriotic tendencies…Cheers!

      I don’t think it’s unpatriotic at all … I don’t think the anthem is neccesary nowadays especially with teams have 5-6 nationalities on their teams … I realize the athems are based on where the teams are from but who cares about the visitors. If an anthem is neccesay then it would make more sense to play the home team’s country’s anthen … no need for two but I would prefer anthems are reserved for major international events. The most unpatriotic thing about anthems is how some singers bastardize them, thinking they’re auditioning for a talent show … now that really pisses me off.

      • I would compromise on the home teams anthem and international events as well. Also, the singers that try to personalize the anthem aren’t doing anyone any favors. It drives me nuts when they try to yodel their way through the anthem dragging it out ad nauseum.
