Watch: Canadian Hockey Fans Sing U.S. National Anthem After Singer’s Mic Fails

Why Now is the time to consider owning gold

The scene? The opening of the third game of the Stanley Cup playoffs between the Anaheim Ducks and the Edmonton Oilers at Edmonton’s Rogers Place Sunday, packed with Canadian hockey fans there to root forthe Oilers in a hotly contested series.

So after ‘Oh Canada,’ the Canadian anthem, up steps Canadian country singer Brett Kissel, there to sing the U.S. national anthem, ‘The Star Spangled Banner.’

And then, his microphone failed. But when Kissel noticed the microphone was not working, he led the packed Canadian crowd in singing the “Star-Spangled Banner” together. And did they ever! Watch this:

The Ducks went on to win the game 6-3, putting them down 2-1 in the seven game series. But while that’s important to hockey fans, what’s more important to me was this gesture of respect from one friend and ally to another. To me, that means a great deal more.
