No need to give Farkle Barkle and his Funky Bunch Morning Zoo Crew any hits on their pointless blog site that adds no value to the video.

Oh... and when you go to the actual video page, you get the info that the singer is Canadian, and while technically "North American" she isn't a US citizen.

I understand she must've been incredibly confused and embarrassed, but why the hell didn't she let the crowd just finish...

Why didn't one of the (apparent) veterans behind her knock her cold with their flag and grab the mic?

God, how about practicing?  It's kind of a big deal to sing this song at an event.  Maybe even write the words on your hand like back in school.  At least she wasn't trying to ghettoize it, so I'll give her some props for that.

Not only is she Canadian, she's French Canadian so that's two strikes against her ability to remember the words
 
2013-05-20 12:56:53 PM  
She wasn't even trying... just mimicking what they sorta sound like. Aaand the rrrrraaaarrrrrccccccc BLAIRE! NNnnnnnnnnrrrtttimmmm AIR!!

Ya know, you'd think that, in spite of practicing, you'd have someone with cue cards, or have key words written on your hand.

But, to be fair, it sounds better than the ones those shiatty pop-music wannabes trying to do Mariah Carey's shiatty pop-music version.

One: Bombers? Really? That may not be a valid comparison.

Two: If you've even been on stage and really blown it, you've got to feel a little sorry for the girl.

She's Canadian, and she was asked the morning  of the game to learn it. So whatever, she farked it up but she didn't have much time to learn it.

Most people don't know what it's like to have "really blown it" on a stage since they're smart enough not to get on the stage in the first place unless they're properly prepared.


howdoibegin: So whatever, she farked it up but she didn't have much time to learn it.


I don't think that's a valide excuse. She could have said, "No, that's not a reasonable time frame for me to learn it. Please find someone else who knows the words or find a recorded version to play."

You take this stuff way too seriously. It's Junior Ice Hockey. That's barely a real sport.

There's two, actually. The United States and Nobody Important.

It's really simple. If you don't know the words, you carry a little note in your hand with the words. Or you have your mom in the stands with cue cards.

Still outnumbered 10 to one by American singers butchering the Canadian anthem.

This.  I'd much rather see someone fark up the words, have a decent sense of humor about it, and tough it out, than watch someone get every word right, but make "banner", "wave", and "free" each sound like Justin Bieber songs in and of themselves.

Not always. I've been in a couple of situtations where a farking retarded production company changed the entire script at the 11th hour and expected everyone to learn all their lines before we went on air.

They even biatched about us after the live performance and complained to our agents that we weren't that good.

We didn't want to go on as we felt that we weren't prepared but we were under contract, so either we go on and give a shiate performance or be sued for breach of contract. (They still tried to sue for beach of contract as we were 'no good' and didn't give the performance that they had wanted or expected.)

I'm looking especially at you Endemol, fark you, you POS company.
