We showed this on social media last night, but it was done so well, I felt it was appropriate to give all of you the chance to see it again tonight.

With the Super Bowl from MetLife Stadium coming just over one week from now, time to welcome one and all to the New York metro area. We can do that now, thanks to our friends from the “Road to MetLife Stadium” program that you have heard me mention on and off throughout 2013.

They have put together a welcome to the area, with NFL athletes, both local, out of town, and legendary. Take a look at this video where Emmitt Smith, among others, give us a rendition of the National Anthem. Take a look:

What a nice way to welcome to world to the area. I for one, was surprised that some of these guys could actually sing. Josh Brown actually had a very nice voice in my opinion, and Emmitt was no slouch either. Nick Mangold? Well, at least he can play center.

Hope you enjoyed that, and have a great night.
