Are you ready for the most horrible attempts at both the American and Canadian National Anthems ever? There’s been worst renditions of each song at a sporting event, but you won’t find a worse combo platter of these two at a hockey game.
The fans at the Ottawa Senators vs. Pittsburgh Penguins game had to endure the closest thing to a human singing version of Miss Piggy you’ll ever see.

And then what sounds like a brief butchering of the French lyrics, she throws out a “Let me hear you” at the 3:19 mark. The boo birds were right.

With Sidney Crosby scoring goals again, the Pittsburgh Penguins appear back on track after a rare loss.
That likely does not bode well for the New York Islanders, who have not won in Pittsburgh in more than four years.

An open letter...
