Miami Dolphins Continue to Suck, Ask Jan From The Office to Sing National Anthem

The Miami Dolphins may not have any victories this season, but they certainly have a sense of humor. They're letting Jan from The Office sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at this Sunday's loss game against the Denver Broncos.

Melora Hardin, who plays Jan on the hit NBC sitcom, has been on a non-stop National Anthem rounds ever since she sang Francis Scott Key's famous ditty at last year's Anaheim Ducks' season opener. Evidently, the people in charge of booking "talent" missed her rendition of "Preacher's Son" on The Office.

Alright, she's not that bad. And as it turns out, Hardin's been a musician her whole life, but if you're a sucker for mature easy-listening pop music, you already knew that.

"Melora Hardin is one of the most truly talented people in entertainment," writes Amazon user and Hardin superfan K. Pritchett. "She is an extraordinary actress [and] an extremely talented singer who has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard."

Pritchett gave Hardin's latest record, "All the Way to Mars," a four-star review, and it changed Pittsburgh's C. Duvall's life.

"This CD has changed my life forever. Would I recommend it? Only if you want to rock six-pack abs while combing a full head of thick, unmatted hair."

Sold! If 17 tracks of adult contemporary tuneage can give us the body of a Greek god, we're totally raiding our dentist's six-disc CD changer next time we're in for a cleaning.

What's that, there's talk of a re-release later this year? We'll take 30, please. One for every pound we plan on shedding with Melora Hardin's sweet voice riding our iPod like a drill sergeant.

The Office's Melora Hardin sings the National Anthem. Sunday, October 22. Sun Life Stadium, 2269 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami Gardens. Kickoff is 1 p.m. and tickets cost between $45 to $680 via www.ticketmaster.com.
