Sheryl Crow and her no good, very bad, terrible rendition of our national anthem

Anyone watch MLB’s marathon five-hour All Star Game last night? It was a good time – got to say goodbye to Yankee Stadium, look around for Madonna, remember how much Joe Buck and Tim McCarver suck as announcers and forget about Sheryl Crow’s performance of “The Star Spangled Banner.”

Now, it wasn’t her singing that was bad, that was actually okay. No it was her use guitar, which sounded lost in the acoustics of The House that Ruth Built. Seriously. It was like she was tuning her guitar or not even playing, so you have to wonder what was the point. Still, those white pants and American-flag T-shirt were purdy. [via]

    Scotty, you know how I feel about James Taylor. Agree to disagree as they say. Though I love the idea that Lance Armstrong broke up with Crow once she got breast cancer. I don’t know why but that still makes me laugh…

    also how come you always enter name as “Search the web on Snap.Com”? Wouldn’t it be easier to write Scotty D.?

    No one other than James Taylor should be allowed to do an acoustic version of our national anthem. He gave me goose bumps when he preformed it at Fenway. Miss Crow had me wishing she?d fly away. I would have rather seen her throw out the first pitch than sing the anthem. I?m guessing from her experiences with Lance Armstrong that she knows how to handle a ball.
