Of sports events on 22 Jan 2012, the Giants won, but Steven Tyler was awful in Boston. In a post titled Steven Tyler’s scarf better than ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ rendition yahoo sports noted:
It was more of a warbled scream. Associated Press is saying that it would not get him to Hollywood, while Deadspin called it one of the worst anthems of all time. Radar gave him credit for getting all the words right, but that's about it. Sports Grid asked, "How is this guy supposed to pass as a judge on a singing competition when he does… this?" The Boston Herald was one of the few voices to defend Tyler, calling the performance, "pretty decent."
