We’d like to take a moment from your normal daily outrage to share this video of a softball game with you. Now, we don’t know when or where this video was taken, but what’s really important is what happens after the announcer says they will not be playing the National Anthem.
WOW JUST WOW
An announcer says “we won’t be playing the National Anthem” then watch what happens. ?? pic.twitter.com/NFcSU1iUpZ

Not playing the National Anthem? We don’t think so.
Sadly only one team came back out to the field but still, the crowd wins the day. What the Hell sort of country are we living in when a softball game chooses not to play the National Anthem? Eff all that.

Ain’t THAT the truth?
Am I the only one bawling watching this? So beautiful. ??

We might have something in our eye.
We’re not crying, YOU’RE CRYING.
That was beautiful. Thank God for the people that honor the brave that fought for our country and still fighting.

— UPDATE —
This apparently happened in 2015 in Houston, TX – it was a technical difficulty.
Just FYI, that was here in Houston in 2015. They couldn't get the anthem to play do to technical difficulties. https://t.co/kLpRp9RyI9

Interesting how everyone assumed it was political. Says a lot about 2020 and ain’t none of it good.
