Jimmy Buffett Confused Football Enthusiasts With An Unearned Mic Drop After Singing The National Anthem
The big National Sporting Event is fast approaching. Gladys Knight will perform the thankless task of singing The Star Spangled Banner aka The National Anthem. But before that can happen, some other people had to sing that song in front of a crowd of football enthusiasts cum judges of vocal talent. At last night’s playoff game between the Los Angeles Goat Men and the New Orleans Man Angels, Jimmy Buffett put his margarita down long enough to take a stab at one of the most notoriously impossible songs to sing well. But he was either too drunk or not drunk enough. Who knows, two more margaritas and he might have been in the pocket. Two fewer, and he might not have performed a wholly unearned mic drop. The only person who’s ever earned the right to drop the mic after singing The National Anthem was Fergie (Whitney gave us something transcendent and doesn’t need to be dragged into this conversation).
