When the National Anthem was being sung wonderfully by a young woman from Springfield to open this morning’s Democratic State Convention, I and all the delegates I could see where standing and facing the colors. The same was not the case in the press box according to this Tweet from the Lowell Sun’s Chris Camire:
Young woman, Vanessa, belts out killer version of national anthem. Do reporters stand during anthem? Most in press box didn’t.
Just wondering if this is common practice and if yes, is it appropriate?
