SEAFORD, Delaware (AP) — The Star-Spangled Banner isn’t an unusual feature of high school pre-game festivities, but Roseanne Barr’s screeching 1990s rendition surprised spectators at one Delaware volleyball game.
The News Journal of Wilmington reported the Seaford School District apologised on Wednesday for the shock served at Seaford High School’s Tuesday game against Milford High.
A letter from Superintendent David Perrington said pre-game proceedings will be improved to spike future occurrences and the lapse is being investigated. Officials didn’t immediately explain how Barr’s infamous version, performed before a San Diego Padres game, was set.
The letter said the district usually plays the national anthem before sports games as a way to honour the United States (US) and its armed forces. It said the district will play the district-approved version in the future.
