This moron has a problem with Americans for showing our love for our country?
First, I’ll tell you how this got started. In the mid-80′s, there were only a few dozen American-born hockey players in the National Hockey League.
When these teams would come to Chicago Stadium (I was a Blackhawks season ticket holder back then), they’d start skating before our national anthem was finished (now, they play both the American and Canadian anthems before every game).
This pissed us off.
So we decided to start cheering for our country from the beginning to the end of the Star Spangled Banner. This has been going on as a sign of how much we love America for 25+ years.
