Joe Rogan posted this video up that he filmed during the national anthem that took place at the UFC "Fight For The Troops" event here in North Carolina. He also has a blog about his thoughts on the war, raising money, and a bunch of other stuff. I've never been in the military. However, I've had family members that fought in WW 2, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and a good friend of mine from college was killed in Iraq last year. As you know I played baseball all throughout high school, college, and a little stint after college. The national anthem was always played before each and every game. I too always remembered getting goose bumps and a sense of pride while it played before each and every game. Which brings me to the question of, should the national anthem be played before each and every MMA event? The video is after the jump.
