No, it's not 1990, but apparently a 1990 controversial version of the National Anthem as performed by Rosanne Barr is causing the Seaford School District to issue an apology after the song was played at a school sporting event.

"The Seaford School District has become aware that prior to Tuesday’s girls’ volleyball match between Seaford High school and Milford High School, a version of the National Anthem sung by Roseanne Barr was played. An investigation was initiated to determine why the national anthem normally played was not used. As a result of the investigation, proper responses and pre-game proceedings will be improved to support such incidents from happening again. The Milford School District’s Superintendent was contacted Tuesday evening with an apology regarding this incident. Additionally, letters of apology are being sent to Milford School District to be shared with student-athletes, coaches and fans who were known to be in attendance.

This event is not representative of the Seaford School District or its students, and the District will take appropriate action to ensure proper response and modification of pre-game proceedings. We apologize for this unfortunate event."

-David Perrington, Superintendent
