This Tuesday night, the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers faced off for the first time in the World Series, and while information about how many people tuned in hasn’t surfaced as of yet, people who watched the game, both on the stadiums and on TV, were surprised by one major thing.
Unlike previous NFL games which had many players from both teams taking a knee during the national anthem as a sign of protest, and thus, disrespecting the anthem, flag as well as other core values of the American society, this game was different, as fans were shocked positively to see that no players took a knee.
But on top of everything, a powerful performance was delivered at Dodger Stadium, with a flyover saluting the U.S. troops which are risking their lives every single day to keep us safe.

And even that didn’t fulfill the needs of the World Series game to show respect to our army, and as a result, even more respect and love was shown for the country during the seventh inning.
To be more specific, a group of U.S. military personnel took the field, including Petty Officer 2nd Class Mike Dalager, who took the mic and sang “God Bless America.”
And many hope that this won’t be the end of the surprises which may come from the World Series games. As of right now, Brad Paisley is scheduled to sing the anthem during Game 2 this Wednesday, and we can only hope they have more love to show for America and it’s military.
