VIDEO: Sara Evans' National Anthem Performance Wasn't The Best

Very few people can kill my enthusiasm for Game 2 of the 2012 NBA Finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat, but Sara Evans came pretty close. The country music star not only wore hideous neon green pants while singing the national anthem, but droned on for what seemed like forever, holding the wrong notes, slowing the words down and forgetting the cardinal rule of national anthem singing: don't make it about you.

If you care to re-live it, here's the video.


Lest you think I'm alone with this criticism, here's Russell Westbrook's reaction.

I don't blame you one bit, Russell.
