What's up fu#$ers?

Well hell. I log on here for the first time in 2 months and nobody to talk to.

Aph, I got your PM but your box is full (as always) so I couldn't reply back.

Hope everyone is well. Things have been great here in Texas, well at least in Central Texas. Prayers are with you Gulf Coasters.

Hey Cowboy -- I've been very busy this month so my ihBB experience has been minimal as well. There are pages of threads with new posts since my last login, but I'm really not going to bother.

Nice win on Monday night by the way (that goes for you too john). Best game of the week by far. Oh and Ed Hochuli's not on my Christmas card list if anyone's wondering.

EDIT: It's worth saying though the MNF anthem singer was a disgrace. I mean yuck I've never been so offended by a rendition of the anthem before.

It amazes me how many people try to "add" to the National Anthem as if it isn't good enough as written. Yeah, I put that one down with Rosanne as the worst renditions.

What bothered me about it wasn't so much the bad singing, but that she clearly regarded the moment as a spotlight for self promotion rather than as an honor to lead the evening's reverence to the country.

Sometimes alternate renditions can still preserve the meaning, like John Williams' breathtaking orchestral version performed at a World Series game last fall. Also, while it isn't the actual anthem, Ray Charles' hallmark tweaks to "America the Beautiful" enhanced it beyond imagination.

The key difference between those and Kat Deluna's anthem at the football game is the meaning brought into the performance by the artists. Ray Charles, John Williams et al included their personal (and masterful) touches to show their great love for this country. However, Kat Deluna bent the anthem sideways to show herself off. Total disgrace.
