Did you watch World Series game four last night? It looks like the Phillies are going to win the Series and that's fine with me although I was pulling for the Rays for Cinderella reasons.
How long 'til Spring Training?
Anyway, I'm not bugged by the baseball. No, I'm back on one of my pet peeves: the way in which the National Anthem is treated.
I like Patti Labelle. She's a good singer. She's probably a fine human being. And she's from Philadelphia so I understand why she was invited to sing.
But nobody in that stadium could have possibly sung along with her rendition of our National Anthem.
I have written about this before and I haven't changed my mind.
The anthem should be a celebratory joint effort, not a performance.
