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.
Los Angeles, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – It’s game number three between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals as they battle to win the 2014 World Series title. The Giants and Royals are tied 1-1.
In solidarity with their home team, radio stations in San Francisco vowed to ban the Grammy Award-winning song ‘Royals’ from the airwaves for the duration of the World Series.
‘Royals’ won for singer Lorde and song writer Joel Little the Grammy for Song of the Year at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles last January.
Today, Lorde and Little announced that they were filing a class-action law suit against the San Francisco radio stations for banning their song.
“Our song has nothing to do with the Kansas City baseball team, and neither are we into sports,” Lorde said, “so why are we being punished for something that we have nothing to do with?”
Little told reporters that they are suing for $10 Million which represents potential loss of revenue from the sales and exposure of their award-winning song. “How would Tony Bennett feel if radio stations in Kansas City started banning the song “I left My Heart in San Francisco?’ he asked.
