VIDEO: Jim Cornelison's Hawks-Bulls National Anthem Powers Atlanta To Patriotic Victory

Jeff Teague is America. Actually, look at Joe Johnson's contract -- I think the Atlanta Spirit Group is America. Either way, shout out to Jim Cornelison, Chicago icon, for providing yet another incredible version of the national anthem before the Atlanta Hawks Game 1 win against the Chicago Bulls. Video of "The Star-Spangled Banner," live from the United Center:

That Chicago crowd was quickly silenced in unpatriotic fashion; the Hawks raced out to a 7-0 lead as Chicago got to work on a big, beautiful brick house from the floor. The Chicago Blackhawks' anthem man is great and all, but I'm interested to see what Atlanta has in store for Game 3.

America: where the underdog always has a chance to not get swept despite losing its starting point guard and facing the NBA MVP.
