The *real* disrespect IMHO comes when the SSB--our *national anthem*--is played to commemorate something as trivial as a sporting event.

It's not commemorating a sporting event. It's a chance to commemorate the country. Also, it's not worshipping anything, it's showing allegiance to the American people, a siblinghood.
