Reggie Wayne Got Very Emotional During the National Anthem Last Night (Video and Tweet))
It’s a safe assumption that Reggie Wayne and his display of emotion last night was more a function of the National Anthem itself, and not because he’s a huge Chris Botti fan. However, that shouldn’t detract from the fact that Chris Botti did a pretty amazing job in his trumpet rendition of the Star Spangled Banner prior to last night’s Colts-Giants game.
Here’s a video of the lauded league veteran tearing up at the instrumental take of the song (you can see it at the 1:30 mark):
Pretty good stuff. Especially when, at the risk of stating the obvious, the National Anthem has been done so many times, and butchered almost as often. A new take on it can reinvent the song, and put a whole new spin on it, and Reggie Wayne noticed.
