Singing at the DBAP — Update 2
After last night’s interesting variant on the National Anthem I thought it was time for an update. Diligent readers will recall the meticulously scientific approach to this topic.
Last night the sound system went out as a couple was launching into their rendition, and then cut in and out for the duration. Interestingly, and very impressively, we thought, the fans decided to sing on their own.
Which presented us with a distinct challenge. We could judge ourselves, but that meant recognizing that only two of us could carry a tune. The vote spread was two 5’s (they're our wives — we’re not complete dummies), two 0’s (guess who), and one DNS (Did Not Sing). Or we could try to judge the moments when the vocalists could be heard. We decided to go with the second choice.
