The Super Bowl performs the anthem every year with an obligatory sign language performer that gets seconds of screen time, hardly enough time to be useful for the deaf audience.  1 in 20 people are deaf or hard of hearing and they are neglected and demeaned.  They like football too, and they love the national anthem.  Let them feel the anthem like every other American watching the Super Bowl next year, and see the anthem performed center stage and exclusively in sign language with musical accompaniment.  This is not about political correctness, not about politics at all.  Rest assured, the anthem will be sung with tearful passion by the audience.  Hearing the anthem means alot to everyone, but I guarantee that seeing this monumental event will mean more to those who are deaf and hard of hearing than all the anthems combined for those that can hear.  Also, let the NFL give the performer a whopping paycheck for her undoubtedly monumental performance. Let's all sacrifice hearing the Super Bowl anthem just once to show we acknowledge our friends and loved ones who are deaf.  You will see by the aspiring children's reaction that it was well worth it.
