â†µâ‡¥Davis [sic] Hasselhoff will perform the National Anthem at Saturday's Pioneer Las Vegas Bowl. â†µâ†µThe Las Vegas Sun follows that with "Yes. You read that correctly." Not because you are insane enough to doubt the premier thespian of our time's talents singing, dancing, or devouring hamburgers in a drunken stupor on the floor of a hotel room, but because they, too, feel the unifying magic of the Hoff's presence at the ceremonies. 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 .â†µ
