Really, what the hell difference what the kid wore? Perhaps it is his best set of clothes. Perhaps HE chose to wear what makes him feel comfortable to perform in. Perhaps he believes he looks good in it. Should he have worn a tracksuit with a headband and bobo’s? He didn’t sing the Mexican anthem, he sang the American anthem. And quite well, too.
I think we too often get so wrapped up in seeing political motives behind every action. Motives where none exist. Shadows where the Sun shines brightly.
He did good. He sang with spirit and panache. He actually showed more spirit than some of the players, bouncing foot to foot while he sang. God bless the kid for having the maturity and gumption to stand before thousands and sing his heart out.
To me, THAT is the American spirit. Do your best, do it right and be proud while you do it.
Pennsylvania is nice this time of year, isn’t it?
