Getting the Anthem Wrong

July 27th, 2009

I’m trying to imagine the hue and/or cry that would ensue if a Canadian won oworldseries92ne of the sporting worlds most prestigious events and the organizers played the wrong national anthem: sheer hysterics if the person behind the error was an American, I’d guess.

Maybe their going equally ape today in Spain.

Spaniard Alberto Contador seems to take the playing of the Danish national anthem in stride during the podium ceremony of his Tour de France victory yesterday in Paris.

It’s truthfully more unforgivable than these types of errors usually are, as Contador held a decent lead for the last five days or so of the tournament, and was all but assured victory going into the last day of riding. Surely the better part of a week is enough time to get the right national anthem.

    Hey, if I were currently immersed in writing a book explaining set theory, it would have sounded like that to me too, I’m sure.
