Yesterday, Oilers’ anthem singer Robert Clark put out a video thanking the fans for the support he’s been given and I wanted to help him spread the word.
I’ve been lucky enough to go to three playoff games at Rogers Place so far and one of the coolest parts is when Robert Clark pops up in the crowd and leads 18,000 people in singing the Canadian National Anthem. When I saw that Rob put out a thank you message to the fans I knew that I wanted to help him get a few more views on his video.
Check it out:
Personally, I thought it was pretty cool to hear that Paul Lorieau’s daughter reached out to him to offer support and that the community, in general, is rallying behind him. I know that some of you may be wondering why I posted this video on the site, but I think that this kind of stuff is exactly what OilersNation is all about. We’re a community of fans that are all in this thing together and Rob a big part of that culture.
While Robert is thankful for the support that he’s getting from the community, I’m thankful for the twist he’s put on the anthem this year and how it gets the crowd going before the game has even started.
