Getting The Chills

One other thing I wanted to comment on now and not tomorrow was the stirring rendition of the National Anthem by Jim Cornelison heard at Soldier Field before the Bears-Seattle game today.  It definitely set the tone, and it got this Bears fan ready for action — not to mention a little misty-eyed (EDIT — I finally got the link, so here it is if you didn’t see it already.)

It reminded me of the anthem sung before the 1991 NHL All-Star Game — also in Chicago — which took place shortly after the beginning of the first Gulf War.  That one is available for viewing, however, so take a look if you’re looking for some goose bumps — and don’t forget the Kleenex.
