National Anthem etiquette....
Watching the AA game. National Anthem is going on. Gotta say something to get it off my chest because so many appear to have no idea how you respect the anthem. Many players are doing it correctly, but enough don't know or don't care that it is troublesome to this retired Marine. Here's what you do:
-Hat off head.
-Right hand over your heart. If you are holding your hat in your right hand, the hat does not go over your heart (which puts your hand over your stomach), the hat will be up around your shoulder. Hand is always over heart. Also, right hand does not cling to your collar (saw lots of players doing this). That is just disrespectful...like you cant be bothered. Top tip...hold your hat in your left hand.
-Stand still and face the flag. Do not dance around, sway back and forth, look around the stadium, stare at your feet... Have a little discipline and remain still.
-Military guys (Former and current) have the option to stand at attention (which is what I usually do unless in uniform) or salute (it is appropriate for military guys to salute out of uniform, and required when in uniform).
Off my soap box. Thanks.
