Personally, I would never attempt to sing the National Anthem at a baseball game, it's too hard, too many high notes. That didn't stop Chuck Hayworth from stepping in last minute at The High Point Rockers game in North Carolina to give it his best shot. As you can see from the video, he's in trouble right away. After, "...dawn's early light," things go horribly wrong, forgotten words, made up lyrics, asking the crowd to sing, way off key, this had to be the worst 2 minutes of Chuck's life. He went on Facebook to explain and to apologize to everyone.
It was the old, heat induced "leg cramp" that brought him down! The High Point Rockers released a statement,
"The High Point Rockers had a last-minute fill-in for their National Anthem singer who fell ill. The performer volunteered to fill-in on short notice following a last-minute audition. Unfortunately, due to a combination of factors, the rendition was not up to organizational standards. The High Point Rockers regret the incident and apologize to any and all Americans. The Rockers also believe that second chances are uniquely American and thus are offering that opportunity to the performer."
They're going to give him another shot! I don't know if he'll be up for it after comparisons were made to some of the other National Anthem destroyers, Roseanne Barr, Fergie, and Carl Lewis, but Barstool Sports poses the question, could this be the worst rendition ever? Listen...
