Now that is how you do a stirring National Anthem. You got to give it to hockey fans. They get into the National Anthem more than any other fans. The passion is insane. I remember going to an Atlanta Thrashers game right after Dan Snyder died in the Dany Heatley car wreck and they were playing "Amazing Grace" with the bagpipes and then they did the National Anthem. It's the only time I've openly cried my ass off at a sporting event. If I was in Boston last night I would have done the same exact thing.
Now if only I could get Braves fans down here to scream "BRAVES" at the end of the national anthem. I've been doing it for over two decades and still people at the Ted look at me like I'm a crazy person.
