Kansas City, Kansas (The Adobo Chronicles) – It all comes down to this. Game 7, the final match between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals, happens tonight. Who will win this year’s World Series?
But first, who will sing the national anthem? Aaron Lewis’ botched rendition of the Star-spangled banner in Game 5 didn’t bode well for the Giants. It just added insult to injury when considering San Francisco radio stations’ decision to ban Lorde’ s Grammy-award winning song ‘Royals’ from the airwaves for the duration of the World Series.
Now, Kasas City has the last word: it has invited Lorde to sing her hit song ‘Royals’ — in lieu of the national anthem.
Perhaps it is not a wise political move, but the Royals think it is a brilliant psychological strategy to damage the morale of the Giants and their fans going into Game 7.
Who are you going to root for? Lorde or the Giants?
And who will win the World Series title?
It all happens tonight at 5:07 pm Pacific Daylight Saving Time.
