Hockey Fans


I just saw one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen from sports fans. At the beginning of game three of the 2006 NHL Stanley Cup Finals, the USA National Anthem was first sung, with a great response from the crowd, even though the game was in Canada. Following that was the Canadian Anthem. The singer sung the first couple of lines (a capella) and noticing the crowd’s participation, held the microphone up in the air. Right then the crowd got even louder and continued to sing the rest of the anthem all together. I got goosebumps.

I’ve been to some concerts where people sing along, but this was quite a bit more impressive. 16,000 fans sang the anthem clear enough to hear each word. Pretty good stuff.
