Why do you even have the national anthem on anyway? It's not like you're playing another country. I've always found it completely bizarre.

Because about 10 years ago the military donated a few millions to the NFL with the only request to raise patriotism and stuff.

Shortly afterwards the players (who used to wait in the locker room) now were expected to be present for the national anthem.

The players maybe present now, but they've always played the Anthem.

Those guys make millions of dollars. She probably makes $12 an hour.
