NHL All Star Game Memories: The National Anthem In Chicago
The 1991 NHL All Star Game in noisy old Chicago Stadium. No one really remembers much of the game itself, but everyone remembers Wayne Messmer's daunting rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. With the original Gulf War just days old, the crowd at Chicago Stadium almost drowns him out in their undeniably emotional support of their country and their troops. Maybe it was one of those things that you just had to be in the moment to truly understand it. But for those of who were, it's something you can never forget.
