Army-Navy Game’s Stunning National Anthem Rendition Puts Every Kneeling NFL Player To Shame

Army and Navy met again Saturday afternoon on a snowy field in Philadelphia to play a football game that has been played for over 100 years.
The Army-Navy football game is one of the most storied sports traditions in the country. 

This year marks the 118th time the two teams have met. The teams meet in a neutral city between their respective academies. They often play in NFL stadiums due to the enormous number of active duty and veteran fans who wish to attend.
Before the game, the choirs of the Annapolis and West Point academies joined together to sing the national anthem. It was a solemn moment and was made even more beautiful by the falling snow.

You can bet your ass that no one in this stadium was kneeling.
Listen to the powerful rendition above and see what it looked like from the stands, below:
