    On July 1st, we celebrated Canada’s birthday by providing you with the worst rendition of “O’ Canada” to ever grace our eardrums at a sporting event (no surprise that it came during a Canadian Football League game being played in Las Vegas).  Today, to celebrate Independence Day, we bring you what may very well be […]
