I just watched the medal ceremony for Michael Phelps and heard the version of the Star Spangled Banner they’ve decided to use (although I freely admit that I don’t have the first idea about “who” makes this decision).
And I have to say that I don’t like the version they’ve selected at all. As a matter of fact it’s just about the worst version I’ve ever heard. I don’t make it a habit to blog about this sort of thing but I felt compelled for some reason to do so here.
I don’t know if they will use the same version for each medal ceremony, but I’ll be sure to keep the mute button handy just in case they do.
