National Anthem Open Thread [Ben]

The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League's (PIHL) Open Cup state championship took place last Thursday. I know, I know. You don't care about highschool hockey in Pennsylvania. However, something awesome happened at the game.

First a little background information. It was held at the Robert Morris University Arena which is far smaller than the local NHL arena(Consol Energy Center). As such, the RMU arena doesn't have all the bells and whistles that a professional arena does. For example, it doesn't play the national anthem before non-collegiate games.

The PA announcer apologized for the lack of a national anthem and asked if anyone would like to volunteer. The entire crowd took him up on that offer.

Video below the fold.
