@evan hell, we can talk about signing the national anthem itself. The best ever national anthem performance was Marvin Gaye's, at the 1983 NBA All-Star Game youtube.com/watch?v=QRvVzaQ6i8

Heartbreaking: there is apparently no video I can find of this moment, where a robot named "Mr. Scraps" delivered a ball to James Doohan (Scotty from Star Trek), who had just arrived in a dry-ice-and-laser-bathed Delorean to throw out the first pitch in "The Biodome".

Please enjoy this real quote from the Mariners former VP of marketing:

"We named the robot Mr. Scraps, because it looked like a garbage can on wheels. Not exactly what we were expecting, but it served its purpose."
