On singing the national anthem

My favorite sports highlight of the year was Coach Mo Cheeks helping a girl sing the National Anthem in Portland during the NBA playoffs - here is a video clip (requires Windows Media player) of the coach helping the girl remember the words, and the crowd joining them. (I hope this link never goes bad, because I enjoy it every time I look at it.)

Similarly, today's Roanoke Times has this account of the people who sing the National Anthem at the Salem Avalanche baseball games and minor league sports events in the Roanoke area.
