Now that Mishael Miller is no longer singing the National Anthem, wouldn't it be cool to be the only fans in the NFL that sing it at home games? As far as I know there isn't any other team in the NFL that has it's fans sing the National Anthem and considering it was written right here in Charm city, it's only appropriate that we be the first. This could be the next great Baltimore tradition and reinforce why we are the best fans in America! Let's make it happen!

Sounds like a good idea to me.  At least give it a try, see how it pans out.

I always sing along and they always flash the words on the Smart Vision boards BUT it is one of the hardest songs to sing, this explains whyhttp://associationsn...pangled-banner/. I hope whomever they get leaves the "personal touches out unless you can sing it like Whitney did .
I had 4 years of voice training and performing in public and I am so glad we never had to do the Anthem, our school song was enough of a nightmare.

Just wow at the Oregon rendition, they tried very hard.

Maybe they should let Tucker come out and sing it. I've read he has a voice.

The tradition of singing the anthem accapella in the MLS was started by Philadelphia Union fans.  They also has a supporters group two years before Philly was awarded a team, called the "Sons of Ben" who went to various soccer events lobbying for a team.

Brazil crushed their national anthem before they were annihilated by Germany in the world cup semi final.  But the national anthem being belted out by 80,000 people was deafening through my TV.  I actually stopped what I was doing in the kitchen to go see what was happening.

The National Anthem (the instrumental, not lyrics obviously) are from an old english drinking song so it would fit.

 

I see soooo many countries do this, would love to do this at our home games or hell in every NFL game, MLB game, NHL game and even NBA.
