That’s right. Nationally, I’m known as the girl who sings anthems.
But seriously… I recently “auditioned” to sing the National Anthem for sporting events at my University. And they picked me!!!! (there were only 6 people at the try-outs).
So far I have sung the anthem one time and I didn’t screw it up. That’s 1 victory for the home team…. And 1 loss for the not home team. Here’s why the National Anthem is so important:
- You can’t screw up the National Anthem. I mean, you can screw it up – that’s the whole point. If you do, you’ve basically just screwed up everything. In sports and in life.
- And that’s really the only reason it’s so important.
So anyway, I was lucky enough not to screw it up, thereby upholding the binding, unwritten contract that I will not screw it up, and they’ve asked me to sing it again this weekend.
