The hockey game in Buffalo between the Sabres and the Penguins. First they sing the Canadian National Anthem (pretty as always) and then in lieu of the anthem of The States, they sing “God Bless America” and dedicate it to the troops. The audience is invited to sing along. Hit the refrain and it sounded like every one of the 73,000 fans joined in. At the top of their lungs, at a hockey game, in a sport that cheers violence. Odd, yet moving.
