Video: The Singing Americans

I saw part of the rabid "USA" chanting fan base heading into the curling arena in Pinerolo Monday afternoon. I've often mentioned their songs in this blog. I am forbidden from posting video from inside the arena, so I asked the fans whether they might sing a song for me outside the arena. They agreed. I had hoped for "Jeepers, Creepers, Where'd You Get Those Sweepers," but then they told me they had already performed that number for NBC, so instead we settled on "Take Me Out to Torino." Here's their performance.

You can actually still hear their their Northern Minnesota accents while they sing. Perfect.
