Video: Audio Goes Out During U.S. Anthem...You Won't Believe What Canadian Fans Did Next

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/29/14

Toronto Maple Leafs fans show the meaning of good sportsmanship.

At a recent hockey game in Toronto between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Nashville Predators, the mic gave out when the U.S. national anthem was being sung. Within seconds, the Canadian fans picked up the song and sang it to the end. A spectator happened to be recording it with his smart phone because his two young daughters at home like to stand up and sing both countries' anthems when watching the games. At this live game, he thought he'd record the anthems for them to watch and ended up catching a touching example of graciousness and community spirit.
