It seems that Boston's rendition of the Star Spangled Banner has caused quite a stir. It seems that there are some people who are outraged by the rendition of the national anthem, calling it a "disgrace" and an "outrage". After the anthem, there was an outpour of anger on the Fiesta Bowl message board (the posts have since been removed, however, new posts have emerged).
According to officials for the Fiesta Bowl, phones have been ringing off the hook with an outpour of complaints, but they stand by their decision to have Boston perform the anthem stating they have "done things just a little bit different than other bowl games"
