    I believe those two women were confused. It is considered disrespectful to sit during the song, especially if you were ASKED to stand! Remember Carlos Delgado, the baseball player who never stood during the song because he was protesting the war in Iraq? Obviously he was not exercising etiquette so sitting is definitely not the proper etiquette.

    However, standing or sitting or kneeling are all options any patron may engage in...that's the fundamental liberty we have by being Americans. :)
