I am watching the Olympics. It seems I am addicted, but it's for a couple of weeks every two years, right?

I want to take the time to applaud NBC for really cutting back on the athlete biography crap during their primetime coverage. We're watching for the sports, not the saccharine.

Here's the challenge:

Grab a piece of paper and a pen or open Word

Write the words to the Star Spangled Banner!

Don't just sing it in your head, but write it down so you can see how you did.

I'll post the correct lyrics in the comments so you can check.

O! say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming.
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

I forgot "through the perilous fight."

I sang it to myself as I wrote it. I knew I was missing something, but I couldn't figure it out.

I am ashamed...

Thanks so much for changing your background to white. My eyes won't freak out now when I go to a different site after yours.
