Respect the national anthem

August 2, 2014

Just prior to the Tuesday night Pennsylvania Rebellion game, I explained to my 5 year-old grandson the reason that we stand, remove our caps and cover our hearts for the national anthem.

Part of the way through the national anthem, two men walked by us wearing their ball hats and red shirts. They were not difficult to see as the rest of the crowd was still. Some of us take exception to their disrespect.
