Plus you get to haul around all of your survival gear and get quasi-strip searched by the guards.

^Up until Goodell took over as commissioner, the NFL didn't put the anthem on the air.

You know, come to think of it I don't recall a single military muster, formation, assembly, or ceremony my entire time in where the National Anthem was played. I wonder how this all got started in the first place, playing before sporting events? Objectively is just seems like an odd thing to do. Yeah it's kind of a tradition in baseball (going back to 1916 IIRC) but I can remember in my lifetime they didn't do it at football games. In the military there is a colors ceremony every day at dawn and sunset where the flag is raised. There is a song that plays over the loudspeakers and if you are close enough and in uniform it's customary to stop and salute. It takes like 10-15 seconds. It's just odd that it's supposed to honor the military and the military hardly ever plays it.
Edit: Correction, there was one. Boot Camp graduation. That is a real Dog and Pony show so they did play it then.

IIRC when Baseball did the Star Spangled Banner in 1918's World Series (as a response to the sentiment that due to WWI the series should be cancelled) or the earlier 1862 opening day performance, it wasn't the National Anthem. During WWII the national anthem was played (first during the 7th ending stretch, then at the beginning of games) and it spread to football. I think it was Commissioner Elmer Layden who after the end of the WWII said that it shouldn't be dropped for the NFL.
