    Dear Judges: Please remember that 18,277 people will have to listen to this person sing at a Caps game. Please remember that the melody is from a drinking song and not a funeral dirge. Bob and Caleb sing it at the right speed. Please don’t select some super slow version with improvised changes to the melody in order to highlight the singer’s vocal histrionics. Thank you from a person that has had to endure some pretty bad anthem singers at Verizon.

  2. @CATHY, I’m with you. I think it’s great they’re offering this opportunity to an enterprising amateur singer, but I hope they pick someone with the talent to pull it off.
