Everyone's favorite children's musician Raffi took on hockey recently (he's Canadian!) and stripped it of the violence and aggression usually found at hockey games. A good way to get kids into the sport without becoming douche canoes, or should he stick to songs about whales?
The NCAA March Madness Championship opened with a whimper last night as The Fray sauntered onto the court and promptly butchered the National Anthem. Choosing to play it with a tambourine and bongos may have been a bad enough decision, but the horrifyingly out-of-tune and jangly guitar turned a bad rendition into an atrocity.
