O Say Can You See---Please Help Me Get All of The Words!

So I've been announcing at the Texas Little League District 5 Tourney here in Snyder the last two nights.  It hasn't been much drama until last night when the CD player stuck on Disc 1 and wouldn't play the national anthem.

In that moment of panic I had a quick decision to make. One just let the crowd begin to sing it  or two sing it accapella.   I chose two and begin to pray as I sang " Dear Lord, let me remember all of the words!"

I guess I was thinking about all of the Bloopers and tv shows where they show the person messing up on the Star Spangled Banner.

I just closed my eyes and went for it... it worked out fine but I don't want to be doing that every night!
