What an embaressment!!!

I can't believe what I just saw, two top notch performers totally butcher the National Anthem!!! Aaron Neville I kind of understand, his voice is very unique and inflexible, but Aretha Franklin??? It just follows what many of the profesional musicians I have known for years have always said, if you don't have the ability to sing the National Anthem, DON'T DO IT!!!! It is one of the most difficult songs to sing and actually requires every octave be sung!!! And it is a mattter of National Pride, not a matter of "making the song your own"! So please, in the future, I wish these performers would save the creative license for thier professional careers!

Sounds of Hinky stepping of his soap box heard softly in the background...

Gosh, I am so sad that I don't like football and didn't watch that... sniff.

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?

Thanks for stopping by Keith, but I do have to say that Seattle did get robbed even though the Steelers were the better team.

Jeez - I was totally appalled at their performance of the national anthem. Hell, Roseanne did a better job I think.

I am not dead yet
