Artist Paints Fantastic Picture During National Anthem Before Hockey Game
O, say can you see, indeed.
Artist Joe Everson painted his own rendering of the classic photo "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima" while the national anthem was being performed last Saturday before the Toledo Walleye hosted the Brampton Beast.
Simply amazing, right? If you didn't know what he was painting, you'd probably be all confused right up until the 1:25 mark when you finally understand just how awesome this is.
Everson gets a solid U.S.A-plus for so brilliantly pulling this off.
His work is a change of pace from all the national anthem news that has gone on in sports this year, namely Colin Kaepernick's decision not to stand for it before games.
