    or with less enthusiasm? I am so tired of our northern "friends" degrading our national anthem!  They boo it, they taunt, and now sing it with the speed of an eminem rap song with the enthusiasm of Steven Wright! I say we don't sing their anthem at all! Maybe .. Obama should be calling their prime minister or whatever they call themselves up there in that gutless, thankless region! This is the Stanley Cup Playoffs for GD sakes first game with a HUGE audience and they bum rushed the anthem like that!!! Sickening!!,  and I am surprised there  hasn't been more flack for it...

    Why were their 2 different singers? Was the guy who sang the canadian anthem finishing up his 43rd order of cheeseburgers and poutine?

    Since you obviously dont watch a lot of hockey.  Van has the same guy sing OC everytime.  He has been there a while. 
    Can't even believe this is a thread.  Wow.

    Maybe Van fans should have complained in Chicago.  That place is crazy during the USA NA.  Which I think is absolutely awesome.

    I can sum this up very easily... 99% of the time when the Canadian anthem is song in the States, it's terrible 99% of the time when the American anthem is song in Canada, it's terrible The home country want's their home crowd pumped from the anthem and puts more into the home anthem - simply enough!! BTW - STOP BITCHIN ABOUT CRAP - IT'S LIKE WE ARE ON A HABS SITE!!! GO BRUINS!!!

    I fully disagree.

    O Canada is a simple song.  I can't think of a time it's been sung poorly.

    I also thought the guy in Vancouver was a joke, a plant, someone to get the job done, but do it quickly, and intentionally poorly.

    There is nothing wrong with us talking about it here, Mr. 14 Posts.  Of course, our seats are wide and comfortable.  How are the seats on the bandwagon?

    Yes, and any American with an ounce of you know what, would be livid.
    What about the US media....., any balls there?

    Yes.  It is a scientific formula.  If you have less than 20 posts and suddenly start yapping during the Cup Final, you are on the bandwagon.

    Enjoy the ride!  There isn't much room left, however.

    Here's a solution. 
    Stop singing these things. This is Pro Sports. Not Olympics.
    It's Boston vs Vancouver, not Canada vs USA.

    Maybe the NHL should bring back the young women who forgot the words of the Canadian anthem, (I believe it was last year) and was so embarrassed she walked of the ice without finishing it. Up here (Canada) we just felt sorry for her.

    Or maybe bring in Rossaene Barr to sing it.... Now that would be good for a laugh.... Classless, but still kinda funny if you let it be.

    Certainly you can come up with something better to whine about than this!

    I said the same exact thing the first game. I'd much rather have our National Anthem skipped than to listen to it being rapped in 15 seconds.

    At least Vancouver fans are like the Classless Habs fans and boo.

    Thanks for posting this!  I wanted to post this but thought I was alone in thinking this about the US national anthem.  I agree with your above sentiment on game one and it appeared in game two that they slowed down the pace, perhaps a measure?? (maybe not). 

    Regardless, the Canadian act is getting old when it comes to them playing American hockey teams.  From their over-bloated sense of entitlement from their press and fans; their dismissive performance of the US national athem (including the most disrespectul of booing); the CBC idiots; and whatever drama their teams conjures up - diving, flopping, biting - just name it.  Any shallow victory for them will do.

    I'm proud of our Bruins and the way they play their game.  They're not taking the ludicrous bait of head games, and I believe our guys will be victorious.

    There is a great video on YouTube showing Boston fans cheering the Canadian National Anthem because (as Don Cherry says) 'Boston fans have ...class'. Go Bruins, have class.....we should sing our national anthem as well as Vancouver fans sing theirs
