The Las Vegas Bowl Has the Best Anthem Ever

The Las Vegas Bowl is going to have the burliest, manliest, sexiest national anthem ever, and there's nothing you can do about it.

The Hoff has a daughter at Arizona, so there's a connection that likely puts him in the spot, but still: when Hasselhoff walks up to any mic and asks to sing the National Anthem, you turn up the volume and let the voice of freedom ring .↵
