Flag Day!

Happy Flag Day!!


Did you know that Francis Scott Key wrote the words to "The Star-Spangled Banner" on the back on an envelope and that the source of the music is from an old English drinking song called "To Anacreon in Heaven." So, do you think maybe our flag should look like this?!

nice flag, it has a very English look to it. The Star Spangled Banner is a great tune but the lyrics are very old English. They almost don't make sense. No wonder some arteests have trouble with the words halfway through.

It's a mystery to me why you let some pop stars warble and demolish your anthem before every game. Let the crowd sing it like we do. Very emotional and hair-raising.
