Music – 1985 – US Naval Academy Glee Club – Star Spangled Banner – NBA All Star Game


As was shared in a story about the Ft. Knox Army Band’s rendition of the Star Spangled Banner….we at ImaSportsphile are proud of the newest category in our music section….which is simply titled National Anthem….for there is nothing more traditional in all sporting events than hot dogs, peanuts and the Star Spangled Banner being sung before the start of EVERY public sporting event in America. 

For our 2nd post into our new music category National Anthem….we feature the US Naval Academy Glee Club singing the Star Spangled Banner at the start of the 1985 NBA All Star Game….as the Midshipmens’ rendition is harmoniously beautiful….sung with an image in which “pride” is etched into every word. 

When we take a snap-shot of the individual NBA All Star players…along with a cross-section of the fans in the arena during the playing of our National Anthem….it is a far-cry from a snapshot of NFL players when The Anthem is played at NFL stadiums in the 2017 season….which is really emblematic of why the history of these generations of Americans deserve and need to be remembered….as pieces of vintage footage like this one become more valuable in so many ways… every day….in a world that is too soon forgetting.
