Default national anthems in sports.

I hate it.

I don't know why we do it. For years i've wondered what the point of it all was. I can understand doing it for a game involving national teams, but for just a regular game between 2 teams in whatever league... it just seems totally unnessesary and not even connected to the event at hand.

Am i alone?

for those that disagree, please tell me why it's actually done. If i can understand why it has a place then maybe i can come around to it.
