The "Star Spangled Banner" didn't become our national anthem until 1931. But two decades before that, we began to sing it before sporting events. Michael Gibbons of the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum checks in with the fascinating story of how the Bambino is tied to the origins of the song at baseball games. Plus, we break down the logistics of NHL expansion into Las Vegas with Bleacher Report National Columnist Adrian Dater. Dater examines the Vegas sports market and looks at Commissioner Gary Bettman's role in the growth of the league.
