    @Crystal, I know and its so annoying.  They also do the “O’” thing at Caps games too.  I blame O’s fans.

    O is an actual word in the national anthem.

    True, but you don’t need to yell it in the middle of the anthem, particularly since you’re at a freaking Caps game, not an O’s game.

    so what?  It’s disrespectful when people scream it during the Anthem and annoying.  Do Houston fans shout “rocket” when it comes up in the Anthem…doubt it.

    Maybe you can pass a law against singing thte national anthem?

    Steve, it’s really just a question of having a bit of respect, that’s all.  You can cheer for the entire rest of the game, as loud as you want.  But for the 3 minutes of the Anthem, is it too much to ask to keep quiet (or sing along), remove your hat, and stand up?

    and if that law gets O’s fan outta here, then I’m all for it.

    Is the way the paid entertainment sings the national anthem “respectful”?

    How do i unsubscribe from getting emails every time there is a post?

    Captain_Obvious April 11, 2013 - 9:47 am #70461 Reply

    yes, cause they are singing it, not interrupting by shouting in the middle of it and trying to make themselves look cool.  Whether the paid entertainment does a good job is another story and in the ear of the beholder.

    Are you done yet ?

    What should happen to people who don’t stand and place their hand over their heart during the national anthem since you seem to care so much about respect to the national anthem?

    nothing.  A double amputee may not have the ability to place his/her hand over her heart.

    There are different forms of respect people can show.  Screaming during the anthem is disrespectful, period.

    satisfied?  Of course you’re not, cause its something that affects you, obviously.  Clearly you are one of those d-bags who shout “O”…

    I’m picturing a Houston Rockets game where they yell rockets and am finding it extremely funny for some reason. 

    Also, went to $5 beer night last night.  They only offer the $5 beer in certain consession stands, creating long lines.  I find the tactic of making people spend a half inning (or more) in line to get the promotion to be a little sneaky.  Strategy worked because it helped get me in the gate and I bought a full price beer.
