    Was I seeing things, or did I just see Harry Connick Jr. sing the National Anthem while wearing a Saints hat. Is the man stupid or just downright disrespectful?

    C) He's from New Orleans.
    D) They're in Daytona, not Indianapolis.
    E) Connick is a cool cat, he can do whatever he wants as far as I'm concerned.

    Last time I loked, Florida and Indy were in the US and it's disrespectful to wear a hat during the Anthem.

    He's stupid/disrespectful because he wore a hat whilst singing the National Anthem? Seriously?

    Hell, I served for eight years and I occasionally forgot to take off my hat at a ball game.

    The things we get in a twist about...

    This is true. I can't even begin to count the number of %$^&((&^$ Americans who sit on their butts and fail to take off their hats when a color guard goes by during a parade, or when they rise to sing the National Anthem, or at least listen to it's performance.

    I've given up on trying to change people's attitudes. You would think, however, that Americans would have a little more respect towards the flag that represents their nation and freedom.

    Who cares? Most NASCAR fans are too drunk or stupid (or both) to know the difference anyway.

    If you are a veteran, then you are permitted by law to remain covered, provided you render a military salute to the colors, or while the anthem is being played. That was a recently passed Federal Law (2005, I believe). I do that, since it's a privilege I earned through service.

    Respects,

    Oh, please. Some of the most vile people I've ever met always make it a point to do the "patriotic" things. It means absolutely nothing.

    You respect the ideals that the flag represents by how you apply those ideals in your daily life, period.

    An a-hole with a Terrorist Hunting Permit on his car is still an a-hole.

    In civilian clothes? That's retarded.

    But if that's the case, and I'm allowed to wear a cover during the anthem (when I should know better than anyone), whereas someone else is "stupid" and "disrespectful" for doing the same thing, well, that kind of illustrates how dumb the whole thing is.

    Fine then, have another beer and keep posting. If that's your attitude, then there's no use continuing the discussion.

    respects,

    PS I just found the law in question, and I couldn't find anything about it allowing (not that it's illegal, anyway) veterans to keep their hats on.

    Apologies...I found it.

    WTF Does a sport dedicated to hicks with beer bellies in trailer parks have to do with the Patriots?

    Toss this thread in the trash or somewhere else please
