This isn’t the first time Daly has performed this song. Just that this time, it just came as a surprise. In fact, singing has become something of a tradition for him to show up and entertain his fans before big games. But this time, it was extra special. With the Seminoles coming off a disappointing season last year, fans were eager for a resurgence. Daly’s singing, however off-tuned it may be, did energize the crowd.
