I’m not often moved by the National Anthem sung at football games, but was rocked by Jim Cornelison’s rendition yesterday, at the Chicago Bears/Atlanta Falcons game. Cornelison sings at all Bears home games, just as Misheal Miller does for the Ravens. Both tenors give stirring renditions of the anthem, but Cornelison brought untold numbers to their feet yesterday at the stadium, at home and undoubtedly at sports bars well beyond Chicago. We watched it in a diner, where it was hard not to stand, cheer and shed a tear or two.
