VIDEO: George Mason Reserve Jordan Baird Sings National Anthem Before Game Vs. Old Dominion

It's good to know that George Mason has some talent coming off the bench.

We're not exactly the second coming of Pavarotti ourselves, so we'll gladly give George Mason junior reserve guard Jordan Baird some dap for taking the microphone in front of a packed Patriot Center last Saturday afternoon before the Patriots faced off against Old Dominion. And as it happens, he did a pretty darn good job of it.

Here's what the Post's Steven Goff wrote about Baird's showbiz dreams in an entertaining feature that ran a couple of weeks ago.

He tried again with "American Idol" in 2010 — but again failed to earn a ticket to Hollywood — and traveled to Seattle last year for auditions in "The X Factor," a first-year Fox talent show. He performed in front of several thousand at Key Arena but wasn’t chosen as one of the 17 national finalists.


No, not bad at all.
