Also, I know that FSK wrote it in the near dark, and that he wrote the words in less than one hour. My guess is that it took less time to write the "melody". Five minutes would be my guess. FSK did not write the melody. The melody is from an old English hymn. I'd love to see some Mets fans sitting down during the playing of GBA in support of their highly principled new slugger. That would be very cool. I've been to a few games in NYC (Yankees and Mets) since 9/11, and I never stand for God Bless America. It's a dumb song.

To somewhat play devil's advocate (and resist the knee-jerk "all professional atheletes are selfish" reaction), would this in any way impact the Pacers negatively? The NBA season is essentially meaningless anyway, and maybe a month off from basketball would help Artest be more rested for the playoffs. On second thought, maybe he is just a selfish asshole.
