**Online Extra - Watch Jimmy Buffett’s Mic Drop

January 22, 2019

Jimmy Buffett capped off his rendition of the National Anthem before Sunday’s NFC Championship game in New Orleans with an emphatic mic drop.

Buffett, a lifelong Saints fan, delivered a straightforward, near-recited rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” but it was the “Margaritaville” singer’s actions after “And the home of the brave” that made him go viral: With microphone still in hand, Buffett lifted his right arm and dropped the mic near the 50-yard line.
