I live in Northern California so I was busy for a few hours Wednesday evening watching Game 1 of the World Series. It was a home game for the Giants who won over the Detroit Tigers with a score of 8 to 3.
I listened to the current American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips sing a relaxed rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. It was a solid performance.
Do you remember when Clay Aiken sang at the first game of the World Series? It was on October 18, 2003. The game was between the New York Yankees and the Florida Marlins. Clay sang a beautiful anthem. It was filled with perfect pitch, excellent articulation, a touch of reverence, and a short pause when the jets arrived early. I think it was one of the only times I was nervous for Clay. I just wanted it to be perfect and it was!
I hope you enjoy the following pictures and the video of the event. It was an exciting time.
