Toronto, Canada (The Adobo Chronicles) – It was Hockey game night on Tuesday between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Nashville Predators. As usual, the game was preceded by the singing of the national anthems of the U.S. and Canada.
When it came to the U.S. national anthem, something went wrong.The microphone failed and the singer could not be heard. What happened next shocked the Hockey world.
Toronto fans picked up, stepped in and continued singing the American national anthem to the precise beat and correct lyrics.
Upon learning of this heroic act by the Canadians, the U.S. State Department made an official announcement declaring automatic dual citizenship for all Canadians. “Many Americans can’t even sing our national anthem, let alone do it with the correct lyrics, but the Canadians impressed us with their affinity to our flag and our national anthem,” a State Department spokesperson said.
While the dual citizenship applies to all Canadians, it applies only to Americans who can sing O Canada in tune and with the correct lyrics.
