See, these are the kind of stories Andrea SHOULD be writing. This was a good story though... stick to the fluffy stuff, AA. It suits you better than your hatred for Urban Meyer.

To pretend that she knows anything about football - well that's just ludicrous.

Go Gina Marie!!! GO MAGIC!!!

People who believe in superstitions are weak minded and a drain on our society, however good for this girl for picking up a regular gig until they lose a game at home.

There's no reason to bring religion and God into a discussion about sports.

This has to be so uplifting for her self confidence. She is one amazing child!!!! The only thing I don't like are the people who still don't know her story and make fun of the way she pronounces some of her words. Maybe that should be put out there somehow. I think she should have a contract to always sing the Anthem.

I made the correlation because it applies. Some people are inspired by abstract things that are based on fantasy since there's no scientific proof they exist, i.e., God. History is full of events that were driven by superstitious beliefs. That is why more people have been killed in wars and murdered solely in the name of God and religion. Perhaps if this little girl's singing motivates and inspires your team to perform better, it's worth having her sing the national anthem. God knows (oops) the Magic will need all the help they can get.

While I agree with most things you have said I'm hoping that even you know - but probably won't acknowledge, that this series should be 2-1 in favor of the Magic!

"Media Savvy parents".
That's what a previous story says.

Look at how many places this child has sung the Anthem:

Houston Astros spring training game
U.S. Open Tennis Championship,
Florida Marlins games,
Tampa Bay Lightning games and
even for the NBC Today show.

Her parents are simultaneously
EXPLOITING and INDULGING her.

Nice that she's overcoming symptoms of AUTISMů.

Too bad they can't teach her that others deserve the chance
to sing the Anthem.

The fame has gone to all their heads.

And, yes, it's exploitation and abuse by the parents.

They apparently wouldn't be happy
with just a "normal" child.

You are an absolute moron and it's beyond me how you can make the leap from what I wrote to "George" regarding how the Magic should really be up in the series, to me being a "God hater" - along with the rest of the dribble!

From what I heard on TV of her "singing", sounded more like a sick cow. Her speaking voice was fine, but not her "singing" voice!!!

Which of our City leaders gave their tickets to other City workers or a charity, or children's group and which of them KEPT THEM???

This is very indicative of the personal goals that they work towards as well as their overall motives as to very vote they make!!

No surprises here!!!
