You will be forgiven if you look at the seemingly random pairing of Stephen Colbert and Patrick Wilson lining up to perform the national anthem at a Mets game and think “whuh?” Because, like, whuh? A comedian talk show host and the Insidious guy? Turns out, these nerds can fuckin’ sing!
I say this with no irony or sarcasm whatsoever: That is a genuinely excellent performance of the national anthem. Good crisp phrasing; strong, confident voices; some tasteful harmonizing—this anthem rules! Bravo, gentlemen. Give me the earnest anthem dads over a horny Fergie performance a hundred times out of a hundred.
