Blackhawks Fans' National Anthem Celebrations Disrespectful Sports Tradition? - Video

Unpatriotic to cheer during national anthem?"

I am a Chicagoan obviously, and a patriot even before that. This pre game ritual  has been going on at Chicago Blackhawks games since 1991, a tradition that started during the first gulf war when we fans in attendance that day wanted to send a message to the soldiers and the world that we were all thinking about them and behind them 2000 %, and I know because I was freaking there that day and it was unlike any other sports moment I've personally experienced, that's for sure..

This is a video of that day and national anthem with Blackhhawks singer Wayne Messmer doing the honors as he always did, right up until he was robbed and shot outside the old Chicago stadium right in the throat of all places. He survived the ordeal, and his singing has thankfully for us mostly returned to normal, although he no longer does the anthem at the games.

I'm sure you've seen or heard this before but if not take look please before continuing.

The tradition has continued through today, and while some out there don't understand the background of it and the celebration of America that takes place before each home game ever since, most seem to get it, that this is patriotic gesture and nothing more. No disrespect is meant,  and I personally have no problem with it , but as usual,  some do and t hey talked about it on FOX news this morning


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
