Somehow, It Was Still Scott Stapp's Finest Moment

A clever little conceit for Championship Series week from our friends at Idolator: A compilation of the most ridiculous renditions of the Star-Spangled Banner at sporting events.

They limit themselves to professional singers butchering the anthem, which disqualifies the brilliant and infamous warbling from Carl Lewis — whom we like to think of as "Sports' Zoolander" — but it's still an enjoyable smattering of YouTube goodness.


It's hard, anyway, to come up with a solid list of awful singers than Scott Stapp, Michael Bolton and Jimmy Buffet ... but hey, how'd Liz Phair get in there? Though Steven Tyler's song to kick off the 2004 World Series did make us wonder whether, if possible, the city of Boston could give him back.

By the way, any predictions on singers this week? Maybe they'll sneak Eminem into Comerica!

Hey, It's Enrico Palazzo! [Idolator]
