Letter: Why do we even play anthem before games?

Why do we even play anthem before games?

Singing the national anthem before sports events is less a display of patriotism than bombastic nationalism, which can only be perceived as jingoistic to those watching on television, whether at home or abroad. The anthem adds nothing to the game but a highly questionable political element.
