Notable: Segree performs at halftime and post-game at every Redskins home game on the club level. He has been asked to sing the national anthem at tomorrow's game.

Quotable: "Once you get going, that's exciting," Segree said of singing the anthem. "The nerves are all up to that point, and I know once that first note comes out, it's all about the zone, feeling it. Think about the buzz you feel from singing in front of 85,000 people."
