How about this that just happened on Friday
Edmonton Eskimos fail to stand on guard for thee
[b]Either the Edmonton Eskimos are extremely ignorant or somebody with the team is a screw-up.
For the singing of the national anthem just prior to Friday's game at TD Place -- while the Ottawa RedBlacks stood at attention on the sidelines and 24,000 fans had risen from their seats -- the visiting team remained in its dressing room.
In the country's capital, with the prime minister in attendance, they snubbed our song.
How disgraceful. They may as well have horked on the flag, too.
Now, according to TV reports, the Eskimos claimed they didn't hear the introductions. But it was 7:34 p.m. and kickoff was scheduled for a minute later. Are they unable to put two and two together? Are they unfamiliar with the a tradition that has preempted sports events forever? And members of their support staff were in place by the bench, but the players didn't know enough to join them?
You might give the Eskimos a mulligan, except for the fact they have missed the introductions and JUST made it out in time for the anthem their last two road games, in Montreal and Winnipeg.
And if it was a honest mistake, you'd expect the Eskimo players to emerge from their room at song's end with their tails between their legs, not waving their arms wildly at the crowd.
At least one of those E's on their helmets should stand for embarrassment.[/b]

It has also been noted that the Edmonton Coach doesn't believe in handshakes with opposing coach at games end!
