With every positive there has to be one negative, and that was the singing of the national anthem. I am so proud to say I am from the city where the great song was written, but on this day it was butchered and an embarrassment. Laura Byrna made a mockery out of our anthem, and the sad part is the organizers actually overbooked and had two people there to sing, the other being Bel Air's own Julienne Irwin from America's Got Talent fame. Ms. Irwin was there to sing, but they picked the wrong person to perform. It would have been a pleasure to hear Ms. Irwin sing the song; at least we know she would have done Baltimore and Maryland proud.
