    National Anthem

    Prior to the Eagles game, Timmy Kelly sang the National Anthem. I thought it was one of the best renditions I have ever heard. The song is VERY important to me personally, and I love kids.

    I was curious as to who he was and why he was singing it. After my search I found out the Timmy 10 years old, blind, and suffers from cerebral palsy. This kid had the courage to stand in front of a packed stadium and millions of viewers and sing the song of his country. It was beautiful.

    Great job Timmy! :salute:

    National Anthem

    I was wondering what the significance of him was! He did a great job! I noticed when he was being carried off that there was a cane(?)(the kind that a blind person uses) and that's when I realized he was blind!!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
