One way to enjoy that National Anthem

THE MOST MEMORABLE moment from the Bears-Seahawks playoff game in Chicago on Sunday occurred as the TV camera panned the stands during the National Anthem. There, rising in grinning ecstasy, was a heavy-set, bald fan with one hand placed over his heart and the other holding out a big glass of beer. For a pro football patriot, it was a sort of heartland American gothic that can't get much better, although the fellow might not know how the game turned out. (Clue: the Bears won)
