Too awesome not to share...

On SF Gate's The Poop column today, Peter Hartlaub inquired about your favorite National Anthem performance. He listed Huey Lewis and the News, The Greatful Dead, and Chaka Khan as some of his favorite performances.

Someone named chicagobill posted this comment "...But my favorite performance of all time was at Fenway Park during a game where they were doing awareness of folks with special needs, and a teenage or young adult was to sing. Autistic, I believe. He started laughing in the middle and stopped singing a couple of times, and at a certain point, the crowd took over and sang strongly, and he sang with the crowd, and they applauded like crazy when it was done. This was brought to my attention in one of Bill Simmons's columns for ESPN -- a Yankees fan sent it in, and said it killed him to praise Boston fans, but he had to and hoped that it would go down the same way if the Yankees ever did the same thing."

The crowd's response is awesome. I had to share it.

Here's the video:
