The Pens And Sens Laugh Their Way Through The National Anthems (Video)

sidney crosby anthem laughEarlier in the month we learned that some do not take too kindly to those who wear hats during the national anthem.  I wonder how those same individuals would feel about seeing someone laugh throughout the singing of the anthem?

While they may not be all that impressed with the giggle-fest that broke out during the American and Canadian national anthems prior to Saturday night’s hockey game between the Ottawa Senators and the Pittsburgh Penguins, they should be able to sympathize with the players and fans who found themselves struggling to control their laughter in this instance.  After all, it doesn’t take much to find humor in the voice of singer Measha Brueggergosman.

In addition to the many fans who were caught laughing on camera, we also spotted Sidney Crosby (0:13 mark), Jordan Staal (1:17 mark), Pascal Dupuis (1:30 mark) and Erik Karlsson (4:02 mark) cracking up during Measha’s performance on Saturday.

You can watch all of the hilarity unfold in the video below.
