First we played the anthem for championships and international play.

Then we played it for regular season games.

Now we need to hear it before each match of a high school double header.

farking junkies.

This isn't wrong. Needs to be updated to have a good marchibe beat like the French, Irish, and Soviets.

But did they recite the Pledge of Allegiance between every inning?

Reading the comments I couldn't help but wonder if they were written by unpatriotic Americans getting their news from foreign sources, a bunch of English wankers butting into American politics or just a bunch of Russians trying to rouse the low browed rabble where ever they might be.

If your national anthem doesn't inspire you to go out and kill some other nationality, what really is the point.

/no, not being killed by another nationality isn't the same thing

Why is the national anthem played at sport games in the US anyway? I understand it if two national teams are playing eachother, like in the soccer world cup, but playing the national anthem at domestic sports games just doesn't make any logical sense. No other country does that as far as I know.

Huh, they never did this when I was in high school.  Maybe it was because we never played in any championships.

We had to say the pledge before Little League games though.

Good game, good game, good game, bite me, good game, you suck.

If you don't reaffirm your patriotism at every single sporting event, and weirdly no where else in particular, than you're a commie America-hating fark and you can geeettt out

In the late 70s, we said the Pledge every morning, but by the time I got to Jr. High, it was only recited over the PA during homeroom.  Nobody paid attention.  We were doing our homework from yesterday.

Dear 'MURICANS,

The county and sports will still go on if the pledge/anthem isnt recited every 12 hours. You can knock that off please.

Thanks,
Regular people.

PS: you cant demand people respect the flag and stop kneeling.... then make bikinis, ponchos, napkins, towels, and plates out of it and wipe your everything with it.
 
2018-05-27 2:56:19 PM  
You know what?  I'm OK with this.  If the crowd wants to sing it, then they can sing it.   When they get bored,  some new outrage comes along, and half the people forget how that middle part goes, anyway, they'll stop.

This is how it should happen.

I doubt that the entire crowd just spontaneously started singing.
Besides most people only know the beginning and ending of that stupid song.
That must have been a hot mess.Plus it's Fresno,the meth capitol of Cali.

There's nine hundred and eleven reasons why we do this now.

The thinking is that if we don't celebrate America at every opportunity, then the axis of evil has has won  Of course, it tends to cheapen these patriotic symbols when they are trotted out for every pee wee league game, which opened the door for modern conservatives to give lip service to patriotism while at the least betraying traditions American values (and at the worst actively working with foreign powers to undermine the country if what everyone suspects is happening is true).

(Honestly not sure if that's real of shopped)

Probably the most interesting place I've seen the US flag was at Hooters and their wet-naps packages. Rip the American flag to pieces and then rub your dirty greasy hands over it to get to the wet-nap inside.

By popular demand, we will forego our national anthem.

Ask Canada. Canadian team vs another Canadian team in Hockey. They play the Canadian Anthem before the start of the game. So apparently you know nothing. I'm not going to go into it but I'm pretty sure that most other sports do it as well. It's sort of traditional. They play both national anthems when it's two countries facing off against each other. Twice the music, twice the fun!!!!

oldguy68: As a veteran, I think it's silly as fark to play the anthem before sporting events, save it for military and governmental ceremonies.  If you want to play it on Memorial Day, Veterans Day and the 4th of July, I would be on board, but doing it before every game is goddamn ridiculous and unnecessary.


Given that it is Memorial Weekend, playing it is highly appropriate.

Who gives a fark? I'm sick of morons who think patriotism means waving flags and forcing other people to stand for a song that no one can sing quite right.

Wasn't the whole idea the hardcore OG motherfarkers in the 1770s came up with was, "we're not going to bow down for any King, or any creed, we're going to do shiat our own way.

If any motherfarker disagrees with that, we'll say, "okay, that's your opinion, man", and we can give you shiat about it, but we won't create an environment where you get hanged merely by disagreeing with the status quo.

That's what the so-called conservatives forgot.  So fark them, and fark you, Trump.

Canada is just an imaginary country, like Belgium. That doesn't count.

Yes, indeed when two countries face off it is logical of course, but domestic?

Fixed.  Political protest doesn't need any special conditions to be legitimate.  People can kneel during the anthem or burn flags all they want, and any knuckle-dragging jingoists who don't like it can piss up a farking rope.

Not if you created a syncing app for it based on geolocation. That would allow any large group of citizens to play the anthem whenever they wanted - at ball games, concerts, operas, supermarkets, movie theatres, whatever.
