Nice Deb, who I pilfered this from, said she laughed so hard she cried.

Great thing about ball games is nobody gives a shit who sings. Bet that guy won’t get a lot of requests for his talent after this one. lol
For the remainder of his natural life he will recall that moment and wince.

I feel for the guy, too. Worse yet, I feel for that ballplayer having to live anywhere near Detroit.

I understand the need to “sing it loud, sing it proud” but there is a term in music called your key. Learn it, live it.

I remember Stevie Ray Vaughan (big fan) trying to play the national anthem at a ball game in Texas.
This is from mickeymantle.com:
“Vaughan was invited to play the national anthem at the Houston Astros season opener, against the Los Angeles Dodgers at the Houston Astrodome on Wednesday, April 10, 1985. The Vaughans were hastily flown to Houston, where Stevie confessed to his wife that he didn’t know how to play “The Star Spangled Banner”. She hummed it to him in the limo on the way to the game.
Watching her husband play the national anthem there to a packed house in the cavernous Astrodome, Lenora turned to the guy standing next to her and said, “You know, he didn’t know how that went – I had to hum it to him on the way here.”
The man replied, “Yeah, it’s a hard song.”
When Lenora asked the man if he know her husband, he nodded and said, “No, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of him. My name’s Mickey Mantle.”
So who was strangling the cat? I couldn’t hear that last note.

Uh, as a practical matter, isn’t *DETROIT* pretty much the wrong place to be singing “God Bless America”? He ain’t blessed that particular part of America in quite a long time.

Roscoe: You hit the nail on the head. Detroit is the place of culture now… with a capital K.
That wasn’t the funniest anything. Anyone who laughed at that probably also laughed at Roseanne’s crotch-grabbing National Anthem many years back.
