An Ohio singer brought fans at the Toledo Walleyes game Saturday night to their feet after he sang “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and he didn’t cause the excitement by bending down on one knee.
As Joe Everson sang the words to the national anthem and hit every note pitch-perfect, he furiously painted on a large canvas.
After belting out the final phrase, “the home of the brave,” he turned the canvas right-side-up, revealing his rendering of the most iconic flag-raising of the 20th century by a band of brave Americans: The raising of Old Glory atop Iwo Jima during World War II by a group of U.S. Marines.
That’s right — he painted the entire thing upside-down.

Everyone agreed: Everson made the night on ice magical.

The NFL, meanwhile, has been losing fans since San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began first, by sitting down and then taking a knee during the anthem.
Looks like Toledo’s hockey team won’t have that problem. If anything, they’re going to add to their fan base.
The ball’s in your court, Kaepernick. What could you possibly do to top this?
