National Anthem

Post by beingjustme »

Would anyone explain to me why the National Anthem was not played prior to the Bedford/Ridge girls game @ NBC on Saturday evening? I thought it was played before every game, especially during Tournament play!

I could be wrong, but I don't believe that there were any recordings of the National Anthem present on Saturday. I am under the impression that the basketball cheerleaders usually sing it before home games, and they were missing as well. Our basketball team discussed singing, but there was an announcement made stating that there would be no National Anthem before we had the chance. I'm sure that we would have sung had we been made aware of the situation beforehand. The sound system didn't seem to be working properly either. I don't know. I guess you can chalk this one up to poor planning and/or technical difficulty.

In the past @ an NBC girls game, it has been the b-ball team that sings the anthem. That always put a nice touch to playing there.

The cheerleaders usually do it for Northern, I'm not sure where they were but still we should have had an alternate method such as a tape laying around somewhere.
