July 25, 1990: It was on this day 22 years ago that comedian Roseanne Barr took to the mike at Jack Murphy Stadium (now Qualcomm) in San Diego and did pretty much what you'd guess she'd do when asked to sing "The Star Spangled Banner": sang it poorly.

Not that fans weren't a bit miffed -- you can listen to the whole thing here, boos and all.
