The Boston Bruins’ national anthem vs. the Portland Timbers’ national anthem

Boston Bruins

It’s true that it shouldn’t just take tragic events to draw people together as a country, but that’s what has happened since this past Monday.. Yesterday, the NHL covered a moment that was probably one of the most touching, emotional and patriotic sports moments this country has seen in quite sometime.. The United States and its people have exploded with passionate support for the city of Boston, but there hasn’t been such a unique display of strength and unity quite like the one people saw before the puck was dropped between the Bruins and Sabres Tuesday night.. Boston Bruins’ fan-sang national anthem Boston Bruins’ fan-sang national anthem It was a truly great moment to see a sold out Garden sing the national anthem in unison.. For those who missed it or just want to watch it again, you can take a look at the video below.. Having seen such an incredible display of patriotism, it makes one think back to when the Portland Timbers hosted their first ever home game, and a similar moment took place with their fans.. At the time, no one had seen and heard anything quite like it before, and it invoked a patriotic sort of jealousy among those who weren’t in attendance , that they wished they could have been a part of it.. Tuesday night was surely the same case.. Placing contexts aside for both events though, it begs the question, which is better or perhaps, which is more patriotic?. Those who compare both videos will see there is true pride, passion and patriotism in both crowds.. Both sets of fans are expressing similar enthusiasm, albeit under different circumstances. source: http://www.examiner.com/article/the-boston-bruins-national-anthem-vs-the-portland-timbers-national-anthem
