My favorite rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner”

From 2007.  Place: Fenway Park, Boston.  Singer: Peter Rometti.  He has autism and was selected to sing the national anthem as part of Disability Awareness Night.  The crowd was clearly rooting for him as much as it was the Red Sox.  Watch.  Is this a great country, or what?
