Naw that's Lager Louts & Yanks abroad :-)

But it is true that the Irish claim prominence in abuse of alcohol.
Something to do with a special gene that even allows them to metabolize methanol with little detriment.
An Irishman can drink anyone under the table. No?

No. Provide evidence of your statements. For someone who only joined the boards 3 days ago, you're making a lot of presumptions, or were you born antagonistic?

Well i don't ever see you provide evidence of your outrageous statements, but then i've only been on the boards for 3 days, as you say.
You seem to resort to the "I'm an Elder, and who are you?" argument much too quickly.
Do Your words not survive close scrutiny that easily that you have to attack before defend?

Well anthems as seen by this thread can provoke a "hot" debate, so to provide some brevity, posted the lyrics of a famous song from a well known Yankee classic entitled The Student Prince.

So grab a stein or 2 of beer :-)

Still think it'll make a superb anthem.

How about this one? Forget individual anthems, let's just have one :-)
Ein zwei drei vier
Lift your stein and drink your beer
Ein zwei drei vier
Lift your stein and drink your beer

I could drink to that.
It's still Oktoberfest.

LOL, make sure you listen to Mario Lanza sing it while you're lifting that stein :-)

And probably a song with lyrics in German.

How about this one? Forget individual anthems, let's just have one :-)

Ein zwei drei vier
Lift your stein and drink your beer
Ein zwei drei vier
Lift your stein and drink your beer

Drink, drink, drink
To eyes that are bright as stars when they're shining on me
Drink, drink, drink
To lips that are red and sweet as the fruit on the tree

Here's a hope that those bright eyes will shine
Lovingly, longingly soon into mine
May those lips that are red and sweet
Tonight with joy my own lips meet

Drink, drink, let the toast start
May young hearts never part
Drink, drink, drink
Let every true lover salute his sweetheart

Drink, drink, drink
To arms that are white and warm as a rose in the sun
Drink, drink, drink
To hearts that will love one, only when I am the one

Here's a hope that those soft arms will twine
Tenderly, trustingly soon around mine
All I ask is the right to see
Those smiling eyes beguiling me

Drink, drink, let the toast start
May young hearts never part
Drink, drink, drink
Let every true lover salute his sweetheart, let's drink

Drink, drink, drink
To eyes that are bright as stars when they're shining on me
Drink, drink, drink
To lips that are red and sweet as the fruit on the tree

Here's a hope that those soft arms will twine
Tenderly, trustingly soon around mine
All I ask is a right to see
Those smiling eyes beguiling me

Drink, drink, let the toast start
May young hearts never part
Drink, drink, drink
Let every true lover salute his sweetheart, let's drink

Yes...

We do understand Darth's Arrogance. As you said "before the 1st vote has been logged".

Thank you for agreeing.

Wasn't agreeing, just stating that you are as arrogant. In the few States that have started voting, drumpf has already taken those States?

As you Yanks are forever saying "It's not over until the fat lady sings" :-)

However Trump is gona fix all , he's going to change it .

Another incorrect assessment from Darth. What else is new.

Trump will win. Not because a large percentage of his voter's believe he can, in Darth's words, "fix all".

No... They understand he, unlike Fraud Hillary, is mentioning their valid fears and concerns.

They know there is no hope with a Hillary Presidency. Trump, they hope and pray, can do something.

It is Supreme and Unwarranted Arrogance, to believe otherwise.

WOW! & before the 1st vote has been logged. What arrogance!

In the past maybe, but in the modern America where it's shoot first, ask questions later - nothing beautiful about that


I know what about "Dueling banjo's" for the American national anthem ;-)

LOL.

However being a good ole Southern boy, thought this one would go down well, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwHvyqNDUvE] :-)

Well, IMO, the Star Spangled Banner is too staid.

You should have adopted the South's anthem as "Dixie" is much more musical :-)

My opinion is that these arrogant, overpaid sportsmen should be kneeling and kissing the ground they walk on for the blessing they have to be able to play a game for millions of dollars in this great country.
Instead, they come off like snot nosed little children.
The NFL should immediately add a clause to all contracts that proper respect for the national anthem is mandatory behavior at all publicly televised events.

And if anybody does not, immediate suspension is in order.

I am not saying that they cannot express their opinions off of the playing field.
That is certainly their right.

But, on the field, they should be expected to honor this country and those who have paid with their lives to make it our home.

Ding Ding!

We have another winner!

I can see it at a gathering of veterans, but a sporting event? Why not have a benediction and invoke a blessing from Allah?! Why anthem?

Must admit I did find it odd to hear an anthem played when I first went to a baseball game, having never heard one at a (non-international) football (or, if you prefer, soccer), rugby or cricket match. While it's pure speculation, I don't imagine any US team owner wants to be the first to stop playing it. I think the only answer for the "why" question now is "tradition", and, to my mind, that's insufficient.

Ding ding!

We have a winner!
