In celebration of the 200th anniversary of The Star-Spangled Banner, UM School of Music, Theatre & Dance Professor Mark Clague talks with us about the unique connection between our national anthem and sports.

In this edition of Bannercast, Mark explores the reasons that The Star-Spangled Banner have become a part of professional sports in America, discusses landmark performances, and clarifies that the last two words of the lyrics are not actually "play ball."

The Star Spangled Banner

That is an exhibit people should definitely check out. Our anthem is something especially associated with sporting events and learning about that history would be interesting.
