I strongly encourage everyone to watch this stunning "rendition" of O Canada by the Edmonton crowd before game three of the Oil/Ducks series.
As an American, I am both amazed and awestruck by this. It nearly brought me to tears. We Americans simply stand and mouth the words to the Star Spangled Banner. On a good day, we might mumble the words. I'm kind of embarrassed by that. We have a common misconception that singing the national anthem, or being patriotic in any way means that you support the current commander-in-chief. I refuse to go off on a political diatribe, but I'll just say that it's flat out embarrassing to see how loudly and proudly Canadians sing their national anthem, compared to how sheepishly we "sing" ours.
