Hidden Patriotism at the Indianapolis 500

Possibly one of the coolest things I've seen in the past three days. I was sitting in the media center cafeteria with my friend Ken Severson (a noted sports writer and former auto racing PR guy), when Casey Jamerson sang the National Anthem.

The entire room got to their feet and stood for the National Anthem. There was no flag, we were out of site from everyone in the stands, and we could only see Casey as a little dot on the closed circuit TV. But it was extremely cool to see everyone rise when, if we hadn't, no one would have said anything.
