I could do that. : In her attempts to perform the Star Spangled Banner before a US-Canada exhibition hockey game in Montreal, singer Caroline Marcil forgot the words, started over, forgot them again, left the ice to get a lyrics sheet, returned to the ice, slipped and fell, got up, and left the arena without completing the performance.

"...the game began without either anthem being sung."

This is the lead in a very funny piece on Only a Game about "the Star Spangled Banner's misadventures in sports".

I was at a Duke game once where the singer forgot the lyrics about midway through; after a brief pause, the crowd picked up where she left off. It ended up being a fairly moving rendition.
