Not to sound like a cynical prick, but you know hardly anyone there knew who Adam Jones was before the announcer's intro.

Big tool fan, but hate WWE and hate National anthems (patriotism is another word for xenophobia, man). But I'm sure he had fun, and isn't that what life's all about, really?

I'm with ya psythe. Patriotism is no better than religion. All it does is further separate humanity. We are one family here on this pale blue dot...the sooner we realize that the better off we'll be and the sooner change will come. They can't wage wars if we don't fight them. :p

I've always marveled at the concept of trumpeting national pride by singing an anthem or chanting a pledge in unison. It's cult-like indoctrination behavior regardless of which country you live in and is the governments means to foster socio-political stability through herd mentality: "Be one of us or be a traitor", "If you don't like it, move to another country" "Until further notice, French fries are now Freedom fries" etc. And people swallow it (again, regardless of which country they live in.).

I'm a little surprised Jones would do this. As much the "National Anthem" as for the WWE.
