Twitter has many uses, and comedian Rob Delaney appears to be attuned to them all. The comedian, whose Twitter feed is entertaining to the point that he was recognized in the Time 100 and by Comedy Central, tweeted at the Dodgers last month with the hope that he could land the job of singing the national anthem at a Los Angeles game. The Dodgers, like any responsible Twitter users, replied back. .@Dodgers May I sing nat’l anthem at a game? I’ve done it 3x in years past but my contact left. I’ve done @RedSox 4x. This is not a joke.— rob delaney (@robdelaney) March 25, 2013 .@robdelaney How's your falsetto?— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) March 25, 2013 The exchange didn’t end on Twitter, though. Delaney got his chance to show off his pipes this weekend, and his singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” revealed that he knows how to use his vocal chords in multiple ways, too. Delaney, who reportedly majored in musical theater, delivered a pretty solid national anthem. (He did not, however, deliver any jokes mid-song, which he promised when interviewed on the field before the game.) Check out Delaney’s song below, and then figure out whether he also used Twitter to book that University of Iowa gig. Photo of the Day Steph Curry had a pretty good night.

Rex Ryan is full of it! No respect for Tebow or he would've given him a chance. Tebow is a proven winner. He just needs a chance to show it— Nate Eickhoff (@eickhoff03) April 29, 2013 Video of the Day Daniel Nava’s got the glove, too. Your browser does not support iframes.
