Same, but better sound, Unfortunately a few more liberties taken with the composition
Yes, it is for real. A violin made from a baseball bat.

Well, well, well its o-bow-man displaying proper protocol in the country that he was elected to serve. I guess playing with himself is more important unless it some other country. What a POS.

OK, I’ll admit it... I cried. Not just because it was beautiful, but because it reminded me of just how much, and how far, our country has gone down the tubes.

What I believe to be the best arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner is one by Felix Vinatieri, band master to Custer's 7th Cavalry. It is available on CD along with some other music composed and arranged by Vinatieri here

What occured to me is that whenever I hear the anthem sung like this, I really understand what this country is and what it stands for; and that makes me think about why so many people just don’t care - they don’t understand who we are. And I realize that “we” is a broad term - I wasn’t here in 1776; my grandparents only arrived in 1919; but I still am inclined to say “we” because I have assimilated into the country so much that I regard it as “my” country. Yet, with illegal aliens (oops, meant to say undocumented workers), libs who hate this country, some young people who haven’t a clue about our history, I can understand why they don’t like it here - as far as they are concerned it’s not their country - they never assimilated - remember Michele Obama? “For the first time in my life I’m proud to be an American.” I was proud the first time I went to a major league ball game; the first time I joined Boy Scouts; the first time I fired a .22 rifle; the first time I went fishing; Heck, there is a lot to be proud about. Think I’m going to listen to that again!

Amen, my friend, if I may call you that. Thank you for all you have done for us. I do the same thing, stand in my living room for the National Anthem.. on TV, RADIO, whatever. At Superbowl viewing party, I did so and I can still see the strange looks directed my way (a couple of others stood with me).

I stated on the live thread here on FR back in 2002 that this was the best rendition I had ever heard. Still hasn’t been topped and hard to imagine it ever will. The surrounding atmosphere of the moment is and was unique. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp5j9wuywUU

I've watched this vid, 10 - 15 times. Each time I get tears!

Is it the young Tom Brady, with his hand over his heart; Is it the talented Black Americans, totally into the moment; Is it Clintoon and Bush 41 standing together without shives in their hand; or is the innocence of a few years past where RAT Socialists were not trying to take over the country??

Whatever! ???What does it take to get this great and wonderful country, and its 300 million citizens, back to where we can all listen to our Anthem and tear up with pride???
