When the PA system at the Hamilton v. Trinity college football game failed the competing teams began to sing our national anthem:
“I think it was something involving the volume to the overall sound system I’m not exactly sure,” Dave Kingsley, Trinity’s director of sports communications, said. “It was a concern because for a second we thought we heard some boos.”
Trinity coach Jeff Devanney said the announcement did not sit well with his players.
“A couple of guys on our team were like ‘No man, you gotta play the song,'” Devanney said. “And then a couple guys just started singing.”
Within a matter of moments, both teams were singing the anthem.
“We weren’t all in sync,” Devanney said. “We had like three different waves of the Star-Spangled Banner going.”
Before long the whole stadium was singing. It wasn;t professional but it was patriotic! Good to know there are young men in America who still appreciate their country!

As for the NFL, Commissioner Roger Goodall had a message for the owners:
Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem,” Goodell wrote. “It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us. We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues. The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues. We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players.

Americans are speaking out…and winning.
