So I'm sitting here, watching Meat Loaf's 1994 rendition of The Star Spangled Banner at the Baseball All Star Game and I realized...

If the military flyover would drop a MOAB on any modern NFL team, not a single person I knew of cared about would die.

In fact, the world might be measurably better off.

The reason I came to this realization was the camera wandering down the 1994 MLB All Stars and there was no kneeling or political statements.

The worst you can say about them is an appearance of eagerness to get past the ceremony and get to the game.

Watch for yourself:

And Meat did a fine job with the song.  Not every celebrity, living or dead, can say as much.


  1. Sportsmoneyball people just need to play the damned ball. I will listen to one if they have good experience or major degrees in the subject of which they were talking about.

    The modern political sports jock? Air drop them onto Ted Nugent's ranch and let him hunt them for all I care.

  2. I never saw that before. Thanks Angus.

  3. Hey Angus;

    Gave me Goosebumps, excellent rendition, Thanks Angus
